 Best way is to use the [checked] tag so the form remembers the state between 

 First set the default:

[if !value confirm]
	[value name="confirm" set="yes"]

 Then in the form:

 <input type="radio" name="confirm" value="yes" [checked name="confirm" 
value="yes"]/> Yes
 <input type="radio" name="confirm" value="no" [checked name="confirm" 
value="no"]/> No

 The [checked] tag will output "CHECKED" in the final HTML if the value of 
"confirm" equals the test value. 

 To do the same with select boxes, you'd use the [selected] tag in a similar 

<select name="confirm">
	<option [selected name="confirm" value="yes"]>yes</option>
	<option [selected name="confirm" value="no"]>no</option>
	<option [selected name="confirm" value="no preference"]>no
