Very intuitive actually. :)

    &lt;script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"&gt;
        function callPage(oList) {
            var sValue = oList.options[oList.selectedIndex].value;
            window.location.href = sValue;

That's in the header; They've got other JS files throughout the site that will have the rest of the code itself. Didn't feel like going through all of them :p.
