I'd like to pass a value to a web form so that on page load, the menu selection will be made to the predefined value.

For example:

Form on below "Settings" defaults to "Butter."
In this example, I'd like to have the menu option be "Milk."

A few caveats:

--I have access to change the code for the page the form is iframed in, but not the form itself.
--I cannot use any third-party software
--I cannot use bookmarklets
--A URL solution is preferred (pass the value in the URL, if possible)
