HTML and CSS Reference
In-Depth Information
label This attribute contains a short label that might be more appealing to use when the
selection list is rendered as a hierarchy due to the presence of an optgroup element.
selected This attribute indicates that the associated item is the default selection. If this
attribute is not included, the first item in the selection list is the default. If the select
element enclosing the option elements has the multiple attribute, the selected attribute
might occur in multiple entries. Otherwise, it should occur in only one entry. Under
XHTML, the value of the selected attribute must be set to selected .
value This attribute indicates the value to be included with the form result when the item
is selected.
