LITERAL control containing html SELECT control - how can I get events ?

on a web page written in VB.NET , I have a literal control  created. It's contents is :

Literal1.Text = " <select name=""addselect"" id =""addselect"" style=""width=100%"" size=""2"" maxlength=""27"" runat=server " & _
" onclick=""__doPostBack(" & _
"'addselect','')"" " & _
" language= ""javascript""> " & _
" <optgroup label=""Owner""> " & _
" <option selected><font size=""2"" face=""Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"" color=""#004080""> " & _
" Owner 1
</font></option>" & _
" </optgroup> <optgroup label=""Agent""> " & _
" <option><font size=""6"" face=""Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"" color=""#004080"" >Agent1 " & _
" </b></font></option>" & _
" <optgroup label=""Applicant""> </optgroup> <optgroup label=""Solicitor""> " & _
" </select>"

This let's me use a dropdown box with the OPTGROUP tag (required), runat=server & autopostback (used script to trigger the "_doPostBack" function) on my form.
This is all very nice but it leaves me with 1 problem. I don't know the code required to :
- raise an event in the code behind page when the select box is clicked
- handle the event
- determine which value was selected in the select box
Anyone know how to do this in VB.NET ?

Is there an HTML container similar to the literal control which can contain images?
I'm using FreeTextBox to gather input from the user which may contain images.  I'm then storing the HTML generated by FreeTextBox in a database.  I need to be able to retrive the HTML at runtime and render it on the page at a specified location.  The literal control works fine for formated text but will not show images.  Is there another control similar to the literal control that will accept images?

I only want one instance of the control on the Web Form. What setting in my project to I adjust to enable this functionality? I can not find it in any of the books that I have referenced.
