If I have a script wih a SELECT-style dropdown menu and the user enters, let's say, an invalid e-mail address, and hits submit, I want to return back to the script with each field displaying what the user had entered previously. I can do this for text forms easily with value="<?php if isset(...), echo ...; ?>", but how do I do this with a SELECT/OPTION combo?

Newer browsers will require you to set the default selected tag as follows:


<select>
<option selected="selected">stuff</option>
</select>

Not newer browsers, newer doctypes. Namely xhtml.
