    You could use the onChange event to trigger a refresh;

    e.g in your forms <select onChange="javascript:location.reload(true)">

    or you could use simple javascript to change the colour of the selected option, I don't know if you want the selected background or selected text red so both options are below

    To change background colour
    <select onChange="javascript:this.options[this.options.selectedIndex].style.background = 'red';">

    To change selected Text colour
    <select onChange="javascript:this.options[this.options.selectedIndex].style.color = 'red';">

    This might help, but it does have it's limitations!
