Selected attribute for select control doesn't work in Firefox

Hello,

I have the following select control:

<SELECT name="Currency">
<OPTION VALUE="1">$-USD-US Dollar</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="2" SELECTED >£-GBP-British Pound</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="3">€-EUR-Euro</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="4">$-CAD-Canadian Dollar</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="5">$-AUD-Australian Dollar</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="6">$-NZD-New Zealand Dollar</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="7">$-MXN-Mexican Pesos</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="8">R$-BRL-Brazilian Real</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="9">$-ARS-Argentinean Pesos</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="10">Bs-VEB-Venezuelan Bolivar</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="11">kr-SEK-Swedish Krona</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="12">¥-JPY-Japanese Yen</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="13">Rs-INR-Indian Rupee</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="14">元-CNY-Chinese Yuan</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="15">$-HKD-Hong Kong Dollar</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="16">$-SGD-Singapore Dollar</OPTION>
</SELECT>

When I view it in IE6 British pounds show as being selected. When I
view the page in Firefox 1.5.0.6 US Dollars show as selected. Any idea
why? I originally had it rendered as
<OPTION SELECTED VALUE=2 SELECTED >£-GBP-British Pound</OPTION>

So I've played around with putting the SELECTED before the VALUE and
with it in it's current position. I've also played around with putting
double and single quotes around the values.

Thanks,
Eric

Likely you are running into Firefox keeping the selected value when the page
is refreshed. Leave the page and then return to it. You'll probably see it
start to work.
