The val() method on a select element works incorrectly in IE

When using the val() method on a SELECT element with a value in order to change the current selection, it fails when given an empty string. Suppose I have the following SELECT:

<select name="selectme">

<option value="">Select something...</option> <option value="1" selected="selected">option 1</option> <option value="2">option 2</option>


Using the following code will select the last option (instead of the first): $("select[name='selectme']").val();

I put two single quotes inside the val() method at the end. They were filtered out somehow
