Something I liked was the recently added `select' method, to select from a dropdown list. An idea I had for this is kind of like `set_visible' method, except that it has nothing to do with visibility. What I mean is that maybe you could set a particular number of item from the list, like say the 3rd one, rather than having to specify the name. I'd have to look at HTML::Form more to see if that's possible; I think so using the `possible_values' method. Not sure about the interface though as the name could just as well be a number. I guess there is already a `form_number', so maybe `select_number'.

How about this? =head2 $mech->select($name, {n => 3} ); That would be more consistent with what we are doing elsewhere. Would you like to contribute a patch that adds the appropriate code, docs, and updates to the test suite? We'll give you credit in 'Changes', and massage your code a little if it needs it. I think it could be a useful feature as well. Mark

I'll give it a try.
