syntax error on <option selected="selected">
I have a problem in running the following code:
<select ID="abc" style="WIDTH: 219px" runat=”server”>
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?
