If you mean you want to list out the files in the server's directory so that the user can select one:

You can use PHP to get an array of the files on the server, and then use a loop to echo them back out...
( EXAMPLE: [a href=\"http://www.phpfreaks.com/phpref/90.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.phpfreaks.com/phpref/90.php[/a] )

I don't know of any HTML that would be able to do this, you need a script to read the contents of a directory.. perhaps I'm wrong though - wouldn't be the first time.

If you mean that you want the user to be able to select a file on his/her PC:

<input type=file> is the HTML. Again, you really need PHP or another scripting language to be able to do anything but allow the user to browse his/her own computer..

I know it's not a great reply or a good answer, but I hope it helps point you in the right direction a bit. Good luck!
