option element

Attributes: value

The option element is used within an input element where the type is "select". It defines the various options available in the pull-down list, and is identical to the "option" element in HTML. The value that's displayed on the screen is set between the <option> and </option> tags, and this is also the value that's submitted to the server unless the optional value attribute is specified.
