print urlencode not working - any fixes/alternatives?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,
I am sending a value from an [color=green]<a href>[/color] to a php page containing a Flash movie. The link simply says [color=green]<a href="mypage.php?label=what">[/color]
In mypage.php, all I want to do is read the value from the querystring and append it to the tag as follows:
[color=green]<param name="movie" value="mymovie.swf?label=<?php print urlencode($label); ?>">[/color]
This works perfectly under php 4.4.2 where I tested it, but on the hosting server (where they are running php 4.3.8 ), nothing gets printed into the page at all.
I've run a 'hello world' so I know my php is getting executed, but this is baffling.
Is there something I can do to make it work?
Perhaps there's something not 'switched on' in the hosting environment that I need..?
Thanks in advance
