i'm using this query to retreive scores for a flash game:
SELECT * FROM fennec_game ORDER BY score DESC;

for some reason, a score of 9 will appear above a score of 89, as single digits are orderd incorectly. is there a way to fix this?
thanks in advance

As your scores are numbers, store them as numeric type (INT) and not as char type
If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.
