You may already be doing it like this, but I think I found a new way to
make select boxes auto-select (what data they put in) a lot easier. All you
have to do is put a variable in each select tag that is equal to the value
of the select option i.e.: <option value=teacher $teacher> -- then all you
have to do is base the variable on that <select name=interest> $$interest =
"selected"; quick and easy with out having to loop through an if elseif
statement.  Let me know if you like that method or have any objections.

Full example below.

print("<select name=interest>\n");
// creates a variable with a name based on
// the value of interest with a value of "selected"
$$interest = "selected";
print("<option value=>- Select One -</option>\n");
print("<option value=teacher $teacher>Teacher</option>\n");
print("<option value=lego $lego>Lego Enthusiast</option>\n");
print("<option value=student $student>Student</option>\n");
print("<option value=homeschool $homeschool>Homeschool Parent</option>\n");
print("<option value=browsing $browsing>Browsing</option>\n");
print("<option value=afterschool $afterschool>Afterschool</option>\n");
print("<option value=bgca $bgca>Boys & Girls Club</option>\n");
print("<option value=ymca $ymva>YMCA</option>\n");
