I have a code that use dropdown list in my jsp page

here's the code

then I use the following in the header of the page

I tried to verify that the dropdown control does not allow to pass the value of the "Please Select..." by the code

but still I cannot get it...How can I properly handle this situation?

Don't you think that client side validations like this should go into Javascript??
