Whatever is specified as the value for the select list is what will be posted to the page specified in the action of the form. If you want to get at the label of the select list you should add in some hidden form elements and use some js code to set the selected text to the value of these elements. You can then reference the posted values of these elements. I'm including an example page with some js code in it that you can use to set the value of these hidden form elements. Let me know if you have any troubles with any part of this.
