[Infusion-users] Inline Select Component Questions

Hi Jen,

Because this Dropdown Inline Edit is in "sneak peek" 
(http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/Components), we haven't 
included the jQuery selectbox plugin in modules we include in the main 
infusion build. As you probably noted, the demo of the dropdown inline 
edit is in the testing folder, and that is the only place you will find 
the selectbox plugin included as a dependency at this time. I'm thinking 
that it would be promoted to the main library modules when we get a 
farther along in its development.
