HIxie, I reassigned this back to you because Cynthia has since responded to
your request for me information; see her response in comment #3:
> combobox and textbox are different roles in the accessibility APIs.  For
> example, in UIA
> Edit Control Type:  Edit controls enable a user to view and edit a simple line
> of text without rich formatting support.  (similar to <input type=text>)
> 
> ComboBox Control Type: A combo box is a list box combined with a static control
> or an edit control that displays the currently selected item in the list box
> portion of the combo box. (similar to <select>)
> 
> When the author adds a list attribute, it adds a dropdown list to the control,
> which makes it meet the definition of the combobox.
