help with displaying

Hi
I want to display whatever the user has input as it is.
For eg:
<?php
$a="&lt;";
echo $a;
?>
should output &lt; and not <
<?php
$a="<?php?>";
echo $a;
?>
should output <?php?>

How to achieve this??

Try echo htmlentities($a );

There's also htmlspecialchar s() and some other functions which may be of help.
Check out the manual, php.net/htmlentities php.net/htmlspecialchar s etc
