    I use the following which you may find useful.

<SCRIPT>    // JavaScript  To alert the consumer abut shipping
  function warn_shipmode(form) {
   var sm = form.mv_shipmode.value;

   if (sm == "fedes") {
        alert("You have selected FedEx Express Shipping.");
   } else {
      if (sm == "fed2day") {
        alert("You have selected FedEx 2 Day Shipping.");
      } }

<SELECT class="inputselect" NAME=mv_shipmode onChange="warn_shipmode(this.form);
     mode=|[data table=country key='[default country US]' col=shipmodes]|
