Thank you, what I need is a little different.

First of all, it is interesting that document.fgcolo r propagates into
paragraphs but not into select elements, any idea why?

Second, I want to be able to change the colour of the select
tags as a response to a click on a button, so how do I assign
to all select tags a colour in script (as opposed to in style sheet/tag)?

It does not do that.

It only looks like it does that. Default background color is transparent.

tags as a response to a click on a button, so how do I assign
to all select tags a colour in script (as opposed to in style sheet/tag)?
Change a class selector in an element above them. For example, add a
class "detonate" to body.

<style type="text/css">
..detonated select {
background: chartreuse;
}
</style>

using:

<button onclick="docume nt.body.classNa me='detonated'" >detonate</button>

This has got to be obvious, but I can't make it work. I have a form called with 3 pull down menus. They are linked to a database which generates the values for the <SELECT? Pull-downs. Lets say I have values selected for all three pull down menus. When I change the first "top-level" menu I want to reset both the second and third menus to the "default" state.

Hello, I am used to using the label tag with check boxes and radio buttons in html forms. This allows me to click on the text of the label to activate/deactivate the check box / button, rather than having to click on the (possibly small) box or button. I recently tried to assign a label to a select "drop down list", but found that when I clicked on the label text to bring it into focus, the select box was reset to the first entry. ...
