Whups. I hit the send button too early on that one. Guess my coffee's
too strong.

Anyway, to amend my earlier post: technically, you don't have to access
the option child's value like I stated. It depends on whether or not you
want to rely on the DOM level-whatever HTML compatibility functions. The
way that I suggested is more along the lines of strict DOM coding - but
you can also access it using the value property of the select element
(compatibility style). The main issue is assigning the node to the
variable at the proper time.
