State Abbreviation drop down on shipping page

Is there an easy way to implement this? Users keep on screwing this up by typing out the whole state name instead of the abbreviation on the shipping page. I am in the US. I'm talking about the post-cart yet pre-payment processor shipping page.
Thanks!

    Hi Aaron,

    I agree that it would be a nightmare to keep track of it for all of the countries in MP.

    However, it would be useful to have some sort of data validation for this in the shipping page, because the error that gets returned from paypal is confusing to users who have entered an invalid state code:

    "10736 - Shipping Address Invalid City State Postal Code - A match of the Shipping Address City, State, and Postal Code failed."

    Any suggestion of a fix for this would be appreciated.

Thank NAME, for their help.
