Since I'm always looping through choices in my database, and not hard-coded
values, it's really no trouble to do:

while ($id = ...){
  $selected = $id == $previously_selected_id ? 'SELECTED' : '';
  echo "<OPTION VALUE=$id $selected>...</OPTION>\n";

If I *really* want hard-coded options, I'll just put them in an array and do
the above.
