I am having problems trying to pass html code as a value thru my dropdown box form to an msaccess db. heres what the checkbox looks like and it works fine if i put a regular text value in it like "off" etc..

<select name="availability" tabindex="3">
<option value="">Choose</option>
<option value="<img src="../images/available-no.gif" width="80" height="12">">Off</option>
<option value="On">On</option>
</select>

does anyone know how to pass html thru a form as an option value??????

thanks in advance.
