What Markus means by "concatinat ion is not needed" is instead of:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. echo '<table border=1>'.'<tr>'.'<td>'.'<div>';
  2. // USE
  3. echo '<table border=1><tr><td><div>';
Line 21 should be:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. echo '<OPTION VALUE=\''.$WID.'\'>'.$WID.'</OPTION>';
  2. // OR
  3. echo "<OPTION VALUE='$WID'>$WID</OPTION>";
Notice the space after the echo. You are right about there being a difference between a single quote and a double, but if you are breaking the string to put a variable (option 1), you do not need to put the variable in double quotes. If you prefer to not break the string, you can have the whole string in double quotes and do not need to break it for a variable. Also, think about the HTML when you're writing a PHP string. Your <option> should look like:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <option value='myVal'>myVal</option>
  2. // NOT
  3. <option value=myVal>myVal</option>
So you need to escape some strings using '\'.

That's all for now.

Hello there, I've a drop down menu (created using CSS & Javascript -- see code below). My problem is, whenever I click a link on the menu the new page replaces the current page (and the menu disappears). Is there a way, I can keep the menu always on top.

I am trying to incorporate a CSS drop-down menu into a site (suckerfish menu). The menu gets lost behind the content below it, but only on one of the drop downs (News).

Usually the menu disappears before I can mouse over it. I guess this is...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
