John,
Does this mean that IBM Forms allows the first item below to be 
selected, and conversely selects that item if the bound data node is the 
empty string?  That's what my test was intended to find out, and what I 
believe at least some other implementations do.

<select ref="data">
<label>data</data>
<item>
<label>(None)</label>
<value />
</item>
<item>
<label>full</label>
<value>full</value>
</item>
</select1/>

Thank you,
Leigh.
