|HTML select box default value|
Can it be set to a specific option?
| 5:02 pm on Nov 6, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Does anyone have any idea whether it's possible to set a default option for an html drop-down select box?
I have an ordered set of options, but would like to highlight an option as a default without necessarily having it first in the list. I had a faint recollection of it being as simple as
<option value="x" default>x</option>
but it doesn't seem to work (at least not for Mozilla anyway), so I must be wrong on that.
For a bonus point, is there a way to do it for 'select multiple' form elements?
Thanks in advance!
