    option selected is not showing as selected

    i have form that has in it

    <tr><td>Billing Country<font class=red> *</font>fieldvalue:2db value:2</td><td><select name=bcountry><option value="">--select--</option><option value='1'>Canada</option><option value='2' selected>Israel</option><option value='3'>United States</option><option value='5'>South Africa</option></select></td></tr>


    now for some reason when I look at the page on the site (generated by asp) the options that is selected with selected after it is not showing as selected

    if i copy and paste the complete html and save as a html file and look at it then it does work

    Do you have a link to the site?

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.

    Try changing <option value='2' selected> to <option value="2" SELECTED="SELECTED">

    You need to tell your ASP script to select it
    The code depends on how you are outputting your dropdown

    e.g.
    Code:
    If rs("field") = myVar then Response.Write " selected=""selected"""
