drop down menu using select


Recommended Posts

<select name="Cancer Facts" style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 13px" onchange="MM_jumpMenu('parent',this,0)">		<option value="http://www.cancerproject.org/diet_cancer/facts/factors.php" selected>Factors Contributing to

The select -> option code is not within form tags, because the javascript handels the event onchange. One can not select the first "selected" option.

Is there supposed to be a question there somewhere or are you just giving out code?
How can I make the dropdown menu select the first option in a list of options, when the first option is pre-selected? In the example given, an onchange event is used.
<select name="Cancer Facts" onchange="MM_jumpMenu('parent',this,0)">		<option value="http://www.php1" selected>Option 1</option>		<option value="http://www.php2" >Option 2</option>

When the user tries to select the first item by clicking on it, nothing happens. Since the indexed item did not change, the onchange event is not triggered. I tried using the onmouseup event and the onclick event, and that was no help. How do I capture the event?
