Default <P> Annoyance

Ok guys,

Here it is:

I have a list box and a go button that populates 3 <P> tags using innerText. However I only want this to happen on one selection. If the user selects anything else I want the <P> tags to be emptied and revert back to their original state. I've tried the following:

<P ID="P1"></P>
<P ID="P2"></P>
<P ID="P3"></P>
<form name ="form1">
<select name = "Selected">
<input type ="button" name ="but1" value ="Go" onclick ="populate()">
<script language =javascript>
function populate(){
if(Selected.selectedIndex = 0){
P1.innerText="Some Text"
P2.innerText="Some Text"
P3.innerText="Some Text"}}
if(Selected.selectedIndex = 1){
if(Selected.selectedIndex = 2){


\'sync\' &lt;cr&gt;

The lines like this:

if(Selected.selectedIndex = x){

should be:

if(Selected.selectedIndex == x){
