I want to high light the selected value in drop down, How can I do that.... For example

String strRequiredValue = "display this value";

Now from DB in my arralist I am getting three Values
1- "display this value1"
2- "display this value"
3- ""display this value2";

In JSP I need to highlight - strRequiredValue = "display this value";
How can we do this, I have following code to get the arraylist and display in drop down, I am able to display the values but dont know how to high light the selected value

Please provide me sample for this.

<select name="ttranrational" tabindex="5" >
<%
 /// Get the data from User table
  ArrayList arlist = umUtil.getSrcTrNeedsist(inCompneyKey, "", "");
     for(int i=0;i<arlist.size();i++){
                 String strScreenName[] = (String [])arlist.get(i);
                  String strValue = strScreenName[1] ; //+ ";"+ strScreenName[3];
%>
 <option value="<%= strValue %>" > <%= strValue %> </option>
<%
  }
 %>          
</select>
 &nbsp;&nbsp;
</td>
