If you don't use the collection attribute, and you want different values and
labels in the list, you need to define two separate collections, one for the
values and one for the labels.

ArrayList statesValues = new ArrayList();
statesValues.add("RS");
statesValues.add("SC");
statesValues.add("PR");
ArrayList statesLabels = new ArrayList();
statesLabels.add("Rio Grande do Sul");
statesLabels.add("Santa Catarina");
statesLabels.add("Paraná");

Next, put these ArrayLists in scope (I put them in my formbean):
myForm.setStatesValues(statesValues);
myForm.setStatesLabels(statesLabels);

And then reference them like this in your jsp:

<html:select name="myForm" property="someProperty">
  <html:options name=" myForm" property="statesValues" labelName="myForm"
labelProperty="statesLabels"/> 
</html:select>

This worked for me, giving me html as you suggested you wanted.

Ok, but probably 'allSchools' is actually a collection of beans that have
getSchoolId() and getSchoolName() methods, right?!

What I have is a java.util.Map like this:

Map states = new HashMap();
states.put("RS","Rio Grande do Sul");
states.put("SC","Santa Catarina");
states.put("PR","Paraná");

and i want to render something like this on my html

<select name="states">
  <option value="RS">Rio Grande do Sul</option>
  <option value="SC">Santa Catarina</option>
  <option value="PR">Paraná</option>
</select>

I guess that is it,

  Here is an example that we have used and it works:

  <html:select property="schoolId">
  <html:options collection="allSchools" 
  property="schoolId" labelProperty="schoolName"/>
  </html:select>
