(and, in my opinion, encourages) bad coding practices.

Your "echo" command really ought to look like this:

echo "<option value=\"" . $row["ID"] . "\" $selected>" . $row["name"] .

Many coders even forget to put in the closing tag: </option>.  That would 
work in IE, and probably even in Netscape, but it's bad coding practice.

Strive to keep your code as compliant with XHTML1.1 standards as 
possible.  When you make the switch to XML, you will find your task much 

"Weird-ass browsers" indeed.  Hmph.
