I do apologise if this has been covered before...

I'm retrieving some results from a mysql database and i'm using mysql_fetch_array() everything works fine..

Apart from the results are not case sensitive, i've checked the database using phpMyAdmin and the values stored ARE case sensitive what am i doing wrong?

here's a peice of code as an example

$sql = "SELECT * FROM table ORDER BY signup_date DESC LIMIT 5";
$result    = mysql_query($sql) or die ("ERROR: ".mysql_error()." with query: $sql");
    while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
        echo "<tr>
                    <td class='profile_name'>
                        <p><a href='user-profile.php?username=$row[username]'>$row[username]</a></p>
// Format date
                $signup_date = date('d-m-y', strtotime($row[signup_date]));
                echo "<td class='signup_date'>

Thanks in advance

I can't see anythig in your PHP or MySql code that would have any effect on case. What about your stylesheet definitions?
If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.
