dropdown not displaying selected

Experts,

I'm going crazy.

I have a base form built in PHP with five dropdowns.  There are additional rows added with jQuery depending on the type of equipment selected.

Two of the base dropdowns show the required selected values, but three of them don't!  

The page source shows all the options being done correctly with the right values "selected".

How can I debug this?

Download Chrome, run the debug tool.
I guess FF has it's firebug (?) extension - you can use this also, I use Opera dragonfly.

Here is a copy of the markup.  The tags have been altered slightly so as not to render, but the values are correct.

The dropdowns that show the proper selected values are Type -> Line, and Material -> steel.   All the rest show "Choose" even though the selected values are pointing to the right items.

Can you help?

That was the key.  Had to look closer at Firebug in FF.
