How Can I Preselect an Option Element in a Select Box?

I have some friends trying to wire up some pages. Several pages link to a destination page that has a select box, and they want to have a given option preselected based on where the user is coming from. After several emails, I decided a quick screencast might explain it more quickly and clearly. So here it is, my first public* screencast.
