I need to be able to retain the selected text in the drop down list.  For example:  The drop down list default is "Choose a product to manage".  When I select "Enterprise" I want to be able to retain "Enterprise" instead of reverting back to "Choose a product to manage" description when the page refreshes with new content.  The javascript and form are as:

<script language="javascript">
function nav(){
   var w = document.Products.Global.selectedIndex;
   var url_add = document.Products.Global.options[w].value;
   window.location.href = url_add;  

<form style="margin-top: 0px;" name="Products">
<select id="Global" name="Global" onchange="nav()" class="text" style="font-size: 10px;">
            <option value="1">Choose a product to manage</option>
            <option value="?hilite=WSE">Enterprise</option>
            <option value="?hilite=WSX">Express</option>
            <option value="?hilite=WSS">Security</option>
            <option value="?hilite=CPS">Content</option>
