When you make a select list on a webform module you get the option to group values by a group name or category: "Option groups for lists and menus may be specified with . <> can be used to insert items at the root of the menu after specifying a group." Reference : http://drupal.org/node/325766 -> "Entering options through the interface"
Is this something I can do with the defualt node select fields aka (list module) ie. http://drupal.org/documentation/modules/list ? I have never heard of it but it would be nice. I have to make a list of working group positions on my site and I have 3 groups each with it's own group name, Hospital, Dental and Physicians and I am trying to figure out the best way to list these groups and their positions in a nice select value widget, I was thinking of using taxonomy but it's not really the same thing as what I want.
