Type of posting
List of category

what I need to have is too keep the previous selection for list of category

I have type of posting working fine.  but I just have to do the same to the category.

here's what I have

<select name="SelSTPost" size="1" style="width: 180px;"
		<option value="" selected="selected">Select type of posting</option>
		<cfoutput query="DispMainMenu">
		<cfif  (isdefined('FORM.SelSTPost')) AND (#FORM.SelSTPost# eq #DispMainMenu.MenuID#)>
		<option value="#DispMainMenu.MenuID#" selected="selected">#DispMainMenu.MainMenuName#</option>
		<option value="#DispMainMenu.MenuID#" >#DispMainMenu.MainMenuName#</option>
<select name="SelCatg" size="1" style="width: 180px;"/>
		<option value="" selected="selected">Select category</option>


<script language="Javascript">  
function setOptions(chosen) {
var selbox = document.FRMAcc.SelCatg;
var getmySubCat = '<cfoutput>#myList#</cfoutput>';
var CTDataList = getmySubCat.split(",");

   selbox.options.length = 0;
   if (chosen == " " || chosen != "Select All") {  
   selbox.options[selbox.options.length] = new Option('Select category',' ');

   for(var i=0, limit=CTDataList.length; i<limit; i+=3)  
if (chosen == CTDataList[i]) {
  selbox.options[selbox.options.length] = new
