Hello, everyone.

Interesting question: Does a form SELECT have an equivalent to a form INPUT type="text" defaultValue?

For example: if an input field has a value of "Click Here" when a form first loads, and is set to become "" (blank) when focus is put on it, you can have JavaScript set the value to defaultValue ("Click Here") upon blur if nothing was typed.

Is there an equivalent for a SELECT option? If a different option is selected, can you compare that new option selectedIndex value to the original option selectedIndex value that was when the form first loads?
