I have a series of select boxes.  I am trying to deselect an option in one of them,  I tried this, but it does not work.  It is a single select box.

//$("#Alpha option[selected]")[0].selected = false;

If you select Baltimore / 1 / 13.5 Wine Bar  Then go back and select another city you will see that the filter box remains selected.

Thank you.  Yes it works, but.....it also deselects immediately as opposed to deselecting when the city is selected.

$(document).ready(function() {
			$('#City, #Alpha').change(function() {
			//get the values
			city = ($('#City').val());
			alpha = ($('#Alpha').val());

			//if both values are set, fire the ajax call
			if (city && alpha) {
			$.ajax({
				type: "POST",	
				url: "../Scripts/alpha_search.php",
				data: {"Letter": alpha, "Cid": city},
				success: function (html) {
					$("#Alpha>option:checked").removeProp("selected"); 
					$("#Restaurant").html(html);
					$("#BigName").html("");
					$("#BigPhone").html("");
					$("#Menus").html("");
					$("#MyMenus").html("");
				}
			});
		} else {
			$("#Alpha>option:checked").removeProp("selected"); 
			$("#Restaurant").empty(); 
			$("#BigName").html("");
			$("#BigPhone").html("");
			$("#Menus").html("");
			$("#MyMenus").html("");
			$("#RestMenus option").remove();
		}
	});
});
