Hi all.. i m not sure shud i post this question to html forum or php as it needs the php to select the value from the db. so i decide to post it here.

I have a problem with the <select></select> stuff. my problem is like this.

If i have a set of pull down menu using <select></select> the values in it are:
orange, apple and banana.

at the beginning, i will pull out the value from the db.. for example, if the value pull out from the db table is banana. so i want my <select></select> in the form to select the banana instead of keep selecting the 1st item.. how am i going to do this?

thanks a lot
