    using escape sequence

    Hi. I have a database table with one field having a string comment field. I need to replace the '£'£ with &pound but I have tried this $Comment = $row['Comment']; $Comment = str_replace( $Comment, "£","£"); This just replaces the $Comment with a single character '£' If the string says "I have a £ in my pocket" it should be replaced with "I have a &pound in my pocket" TIA

    unsigned tinyint

    Sorry but can't get this table creation to work. Any help? DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `config`; CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `config` ( `EntryDate` date DEFAULT NULL, `BalanceValue` decimal(6,2) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0.00', `Mode` unsigned tinyint NOT NULL DEFAULT 0 ) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1;

    Problems with '£'

    Hi. I have a web page that allows a comment field where any charecter can be entered including ' " and £. I enter this into a database `Comment` varchar(32) NOT NULL DEFAULT '', When this is displayed sometimes the pound symbol is displayed as a black demimonde with a question mark. It has a ascii value of 0. How can I fix this? I enter it into the database as Comment = str_replace ( "£", "£", $Comment ) ; This doesn't fix it. It works fine when i enter it into the DB as \' and \". TIA Desmond.

    if (!isset($_SESSION['current_file']))

    Sorry guys. Session start was missing. Always the obvious ones.

I have this if (!isset($_SESSION['current_file'])) { $file_name = "2-" . time() . ".txt"; $_SESSION['current_file'] = $file_name; } When I echo this file na,e out it changes on each page refresh, but the session should be set after the first instance of the page.

    return a recordset

    Ok Thanks. I don't always use use the full <?php ?> and things have worked. It does work now. Sudenly realised. I normaly use <?php at the top of my pages. Left it out this time so it must have got confused.

    return a recordset

    functions.php function readconfig() { $sqlReadConfig = "SELECT * FROM whatadrama_config"; $qReadConfig = mysql_query($sqlReadConfig) or die ("E201-100A"); $rs = mysql_fetch_array($qReadConfig) or die ("E201-100B"); //echo $rs[0] . " - " . $rs[1] . " - " . $rs[2] . " - " . $rs[3]; // *** This works fine *** //exit; return $rs; } webpage.php <? $rs = readconfig(); echo $rs[0]; ?> I can read the contents of a table in my functions file but when I comment out the reading code and return $rs; I can't read it in the main web page.

    I have given the first of each row a clear:left but this has made it worse. http://whatadrama.de...dmin/config.php

    Hi, I want to align text within a text input box. Seems this only works within a style"text-align:right" statement but not within the <input> statement. <div style="width:450px;height:230px;padding:10px;"> <div style="width:240px;height:30px;float:left;"> <div style="width:440px;float:left;">Entry Date: <input style="text-align:right;" type="text" size="1" maxlength="2" name="DD_Entry" value="<?=$SE_DD_Entry?>"> / <input style="text-align:right;" type="text" size="1" maxlength="2" name="MM_Entry" value="<?=$SE_MM_Entry?>"> / <input style="text-align:right;" type="text" size="2" maxlength="4" name="YYYY_Entry" value="<?=$SE_YYYY_Entry?>"> <span style="color:red;"><?=$_SESSION['Error_5']?></span></div> </div> This doesn't work <div style="width:220px;height:30px;float:left;clear:both">Money in: £ <input type="text" maxlength="10" size="5" name="MoneyIn" text-align="right" value="<?=$SE_Money_In?>" size="8"> <span style="color:red;"><?=$_SESSION['Error_6']?></span></div> <div style="width:220px;height:30px;float:left;clear:both">Money Out: £ <input type="text" maxlength="10" size="5" name="MoneyOut" text-align="right" value="<?=$SE_Money_Out?>" size="8"> <span style="color:red;"><?=$_SESSION['Error_7']?></span></div>
