My comment was referring to single-select list boxes, not drop-downs. The
behavior of the former in WebKit and Firefox is that initially they have no
option selected. Furthermore, in Firefox, resetting the form deselects all
options. So I was suggesting that WebKit do the same to be consistent both with
itself and with Firefox.
