in between the <head></head> tags place the following code

<script language="Javascript">
function ckit()
{
  if(document.forms['FORMNAMEHERE'].elements['SELECTNAMEHERE'].selectedIndex == 0)
  {
   alert("Please choose Urgent or Non urgent")
   return false
  }
  else
  {
    return true
  }
}
</script>

and in your <form> tag place the command onSubmit='return ckit()'
it should look like this
<form Action="WHATEVER" name="FORMNAME" onSubmit="return ckit()">

you will need to add names to the form tag and select tag as javascript does not handle the ID tag good in both browsers
