That's the text of the option rather than the option value. Use the value property to get the value.

A shortcut is to use:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.getElementById("state").value
for getting the value. To set the value, do you mean to change the value of a particular option, or do you mean changing the selected option to another one?
