dayfield.options[i]=new Option(i, i+1)
dayfield.options[today.getDate()]=new Option(today.getDate(), today.getDate(), true, true) //select today's day

</script>

<script>
var monthtext=['Jan','Feb','Mar','Apr','May','Jun','Jul','Aug','Sept','Oct','Nov','Dec'];

function populatedropdown(dayfield, monthfield, yearfield){
	var today=new Date()
	var dayfield=document.getElementById(dayfield);
	var monthfield=document.getElementById(monthfield);
	var yearfield=document.getElementById(yearfield);

	for (var i=0; i<31; i++)
		dayfield.options[i]=new Option(i+1, i+1)
	dayfield.options[today.getDate()-1].selected=true;

	for (var m=0; m<12; m++)
		monthfield.options[m]=new Option(monthtext[m], monthtext[m])
	monthfield.options[today.getMonth()].selected=true;
	var thisyear=today.getFullYear()
	for (var y=0; y<20; y++){
		yearfield.options[y]=new Option(thisyear, thisyear)
		thisyear+=1
	}
yearfield.options[0]=new Option(today.getFullYear(), today.getFullYear(), true, true) //select today's year
}

onload=function(){
	 populatedropdown('d', 'm', 'y')
};
</script>
<select id='m' name='month'></select>
<select id='d' name='day'></select>
<select id='y' name='year'></select>

hi the code works good for me but if i had others select field, for example, check out date, these new fields aren't filled. why?

If you are trying to create multiple "sets" of dropdowns, make sure you give all your selects unique ids and call the function with the corresponding ids -ex:

onload=function(){
	 populatedropdown('d1', 'm1', 'y1')
	 populatedropdown('d2', 'm2', 'y2')
};
</script>
<div>
<select id='m1' name='month'></select>
<select id='d1' name='day'></select>
<select id='y1' name='year'></select>
</div>
<div>
<select id='m2' name='month'></select>
<select id='d2' name='day'></select>
<select id='y2' name='year'></select>
</div>
