I know similar questions have been asked before, and I apologize, but I wasn't able to figure my problem out based on those.

This code successfully creates the selection box and populates it accordingly, but it does not set any option as selected. The option I want to set as selected is exactly the "selDate" variable (pulled down from "pref" in the URL).
