Ok so I have the code:

Code HTML4Strict:
<select name="project" id="project" multiple>
					<option value="Hack Installation" class="input">Hack installation ($29 each))</option>
					<option value="Matching Button Sets" class="input">Matching button sets ($79)</option>
					<option value="Custom Post-bit" selected="selected" class="input">Custom post-bit Template ($59)</option>
					<option value="Logo Design" class="input">Logo design ($99)</option>
					<option value="Banner Designer" class="input">Banner design in various sizes ($20+)</option>
What I want to know is how can I make it so that when it is choosen, the text doesn't switch to white and stays black.

Thanks for your time.
