What you said makes sense to me regarding the ordering, except that neither of your suggestions work. I tried deleting the whole option for this one particular product and then re-enter - still didn't work. Then I went into the database and changed the order around, but no combination works. The best I could do was have the options in reverse order, which reversed it on the page. So it's working opposite, sort of. Because also what happens is the choices start above the default. If you look at the screen shot from the db and compare to the link on my page, you'll see what I mean.
