Passing all <option> from <select> to php

Hey,

I wondering if it's possible to retrieve all the <option>-fields from a
<select> when posting a <form> to a php file

Example:
I've got a form like this:

<form action = phpfile.php method=post >
<select name= "name">
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="2">2</option>
</select>
</form>

and a php file where i retrieve the posted date:

$name=$_POST["name"];

but how can i get the value of option 1 and option 2 no matter if they are
selected or not?

Anybody knows?

It might help to know why your PHP script cares about the
options that haven't been selected.

If the options aren't likely to ever change, hard code them
into your PHP script. If they are generated dynamically,
you could also create a hidden form field that lists all of
the options.

Hi. I've been using display:none on the style property of some <option> elements in my forms, which works fine with Mozilla - as expected it removes the option from my dropdown (although it still exists in the code). Is there an equivalent in IE? The reasoning behind this is that I want users to rank objects using a <select> for each...
