Use this.value to get the value of the current selected item in the list:
<select name="background" onChange="document.bgColor = this.value">
 <optgroup label="Background Chooser">
  <option name="color" value="#5577AA">Default</option>
  <option name="color" value="#7799DD">Lightblue</option>
  <option name="color" value="#335588">Darkblue</option>
  <option name="color" value="#5577AA">Black</option>
