OPTION - option in a select list
The OPTION tag
specifies an option in a selection list. Use the OPTION tag inside
a SELECTION tag. When the form containing the selection list is
submitted to the server, a name/value pair is sent for each
selected option in the list. The value portion of an option is the
value of the VALUE attribute, if it has one, otherwise, it is the
text that follows the <OPTION> tag.
This tag would be used within the <FORM> tags.
VALUE = specifies a value that is returned to the
server when the option is selected and the form is submitted. When
no VALUE = attribute is present, the value
returned is the same as the text following the <OPTION> tag.
SELECTED = specifies that the option is selected
