Default syntax error on <option selected="selected">

I have a problem in running the following code:

<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
    <form runat="server">
        <select ID="abc" style="WIDTH: 219px" runat=”server”>
        <option>a</option>
        <option selected="selected">b</option>
        <option>c</option>
        </select>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

If the Select tag is not runat="server", then it's OK, but when the object is parsed by asp.net the tag <Option Selected="selected"> generates error, but <option selected> is OK and accepted by parser. However webmatrix replaces <option selected> by <option selected="selected"> when you go to design view of the page, forcing the error.

Is there any help on this issue please? Is the above text descriptive enough?
