I am building an html table that lists about 50 records worth of date from a database. The database has a lot of blank (null) fields. In my html table, I would like to make all of those fields show 0 instead of just being blank. What would be the easiest way to do this?

Well, you can either handle this in MySQL with IFNULL(), but this won't be clean if you have many NULL-able columns. Otherwise, do it in PHP on the way out.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
