First of all, this form doesn't have a method or action attribute -- so 
I'm not sure which script you intend to call with it, or what HTTP 
protocol you intend to pass the data with.  But assuming it's the POST 
method and the action is PHP_SELF, and that you are using PHP 4.1.x or 

// perform a test to see which should be selected
if ($_POST['display'] == 'true') {
   $select_if_true = "selected=\"yes\"";
   $select_if_false = "selected=\"no\"";
} elseif ($_POST['display'] == 'false') {
   $select_if_true = "selected=\"no\"";
   $select_if_false = "selected=\"yes\"";

// create the form, including the above-defined variables
$form_html = "
<form method=\"post\" action=\"" . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . "\">
   <select name=\"display\">
     <option $select_if_true value=\"true\">Display</option>
     <option $select_if_false value=\"false\">Don't Display</option>

// print the form
print $form_html;
