IE11 RTM was released only recently and we have official support for it in our Q2 2013 SP release (2013.2.918), which was delivered previous week. I've just tested it
and the select event seems to work okay. Also, please make sure you have HTML tag and doctype when you run it (you probably removed them from the sample for some reason, but still).
