ok, thanks for the manual URLs [b]TOPLAY[/b]

I now recall the meaning of this --> & it is just an ampersand.
and i review the manual with ini_set and still don't get it...

because when you look at this -->
[a href=\"http://www.artscraftworks.com/phpinfo.php\" target=\"_blank\"]phpinfo[/a]
the "arg_separator.output" is already set i think?

and why they still declare this? if the php.ini is already set to the right configuration i think?

//PHPSESSION &AMP FIX
ini_set('arg_separator.output','&');

any bright answer PHP GURUS?
I hope you get what i mean brothers?

ini_set allows you to temporarly change PHPs setting. Some developers do the following:
[code]ini_set('arg_separator.output','&');[/code] so that when they validate their code with the W3C's HTML Validator it doesn't break their xHTML validation. As the validator will won't class your HTML as valid xHTML if your links has an & in them. Instead developers use the HTML entities version (&) of the ampersand.
