I have a JSP which has a bunch of output statements that creates textboxes etc.
I know it is bad design - however,it is code that I inherited.I wold like to add an option list with US selected.,but I am getting an error.
out.println("<tr><td width=\"30\">"<SELECT NAME=\"country\" id=\"country\" class=\"dataInputs\">");
                      out.println("<option value='us' selected='selected' ">USA");
                      out.println("<option value='ca'">CANADA");
out.println("</select>");
I thik I have not closed the tags properly- can someone point me to the right place?

out.println("<tr><td width=\"30\">"<SELECT NAME=\"country\" id=\"country\" class=\"dataInputs\">");

There shouldn't be a double-quote between the end of the TD tag and the beginning of the SELECT tag.  Because it's often easier to read, whereever possible I use single quotes internally, and reserve outer quotes to the outside of the entire string, but if you correct this error it should work.
