Default default fontsize

This should be simple but it's not, atleast for me, I'm trying to get the default fontsize to 14 and have the option as "default" in the javascript. <DFSIZE='14'></DFSIZE='14'>

<script type="text/javascript">
function SelectSize()
{
   var dropDown=document.getElementById("size");
   var SelectedSize = dropDown.options[dropDown.selectedIndex].text;
   document.body.style.fontSize=SelectedSize;
}
</script>
Change Size of Text
<form name="frmcontrol">
<select id=size onChange="SelectSize()" >
<option value= "something I need help with">Default
<option value="8">8px
<option value="12">12px
<option value="18">18px
</select>
</form>
