  Hi, I just started experimenting with Orchard to I apologize in advance for my newbishness.

  Suppose I have a content type that references another content type.  Suppose each instance of content type "Product" should reference an instance of content type "Manufacturer".  There is a small number of manufacturers, and I'd like the edit page for a product to let the user choose which manufacturer to associate with the product, maybe from a dropdown box.

  How would I go about doing this?
