Combo-box text arrows

I noticed that too. Just looked at the Apple HUG document for OS X and it
is silent on the matter.  IT feels like the arrow keys should work to me
since they do work in an option menu and and a combo menu is supposed to a
combination of an option menu and a field.

On a related topic, I've always had problems figuring out just how to type
a new value into a combobox.  Is there supposed to be a field at the top of
all the options by default, do I have to leave an empty line in the
choices, or what?
