What you would do is create a hidden <div> tag and then show it when the user puts focus on the desired input. There are some scripts out there that will enable <datalist> functionality via JS for older browser while letting browsers that support it handle it on their own. Check this HTML5 Polyfills list for a bunch of compatibility scripts. There is a section for <datalist>, just do a search on that page.
