I have been dealing with this a few days now and I finally have the code that should work but is not.
The code below causes no errors and it builds the html like it's supposed to but it's not rendering the way it should.  I have a column that has values delimited with a comma. (ex Contract A, Contract B)  Each value is supposed to highlight in the multi-select box when they click "Edit" to edit the form.  Please help!!  Below is the code that I have. See for yourself here ( Click on the second "edit" link.  The alerts will show what the html looks like, which looks fine.

function getContractValue(performer)
	var appendThis = "";
    operation: "GetListItems",
    async: false,
    listName: "Contracts",
    CAMLViewFields: "<ViewFields></ViewFields>",
    CAMLQuery:"<Query><Where><Eq><FieldRef Name='Performer'/><Value Type='Lookup'>" + performer + "</Value></Eq></Where></Query>",
    completefunc: function (xData, Status) {
      $(xData.responseXML).SPFilterNode("z:row").each(function() { 
	  if($.inArray($(this).attr("ows_ContractName"),glbContractArray)!= -1)
		appendThis = "<option value='"+$(this).attr("ows_ContractName")+"' selected>"+$(this).attr("ows_ContractName")+"</option>";
		appendThis = "<option value='"+$(this).attr("ows_ContractName")+"'>"+$(this).attr("ows_ContractName")+"</option>";
