See Lachlan Hunt's suggestion elsewhere in this thread, he uses:

<input type="text" name="country" list="country-list">
<select name="country-list" id="country-list">

This gives you an input type="text" that has an attached dropdown with  
your suggestions.  With unobtrusive scripting, you could filter this list  
automatically as the user types (by setting the disabled attribute on  
non-matching <option>s.
