I don't have a clue what any of that is. It's not HTML.

Wow, what is that? a select tag looks like this:

[HTML]<select name='myselect'>
<option value='someVal' selected='selected'>This option is selected</option>
<option value='someOtherVal'>Some Other Val</option>

If you want the option to be selected by default, you just have to add "selected='selected'" attribute.

Hope that helps.
