A work-around for multiple column/select Template......

OK, I surrender (just for now and with the select Template ;-O). This is the best between worst solutions I am able to find ( not true , found other, but too slow and complicated).
Consist in pass list values (as array name) through a predefined DIV, this permit different lists for each column, but also conditionally for the same column and [dependant of anything ;-) ]. Note the Template reffers the div by ID, so if needed, change "divname.setId" on both sides (Template and page).
Here is a small sample (Template Included )

Sorry, As always I forgot a line inside the Template:
ddlist.element().focus(); [is last line of the switchToEditMode() function ]
And for run under Mozilla & I.E try this one.
Thanks
