[FX.php List] Dynamic Value Lists

Another newbie question:

I have a value list that is being pulled from my database. The value  
list in the database is not a static list, instead it uses values  
from a field. The issue I'm having is that when the form is  
displayed, it displays the first item in the list. I need it to be  
initially blank. Filemaker will not add an empty (blank) value to a  
dynamic value list. so this needs to be done in my php code. This is  
what I have right now:

<select name="Title">
     foreach($listResult['valueLists']['Title'] as $key=>$value) {
             <option value="<?php echo $value; ?>"><?php echo  
$value; ?></option>
