      Changing the lines above to :

      $aHeight[1] = "4' 2\" (1.60mts)";
      $aHeight[2] = "4' 5\" (1.70mts)";

      should solve your problem and generate the following HTML:

      <option value="1">4' 2" (1.60mts)</option>
      <option value="2">4' 5" (1.70mts)</option>

      Hope that helps. :)

        Dear

        I need to display a html list box with the following values

        ..
        <Select name="height">
        <option value=1>4' 2" (1.60 mts)</option>
        <option value=1>4' 5" (1.70 mts)</option>
        </Select>
        ...

        I am using php to display the selected value upon submit and
        revisiting of the page.

        <?php

        /*stuffing of option values into php array aHeight
        by using html special characters */


        $aHeight[1] = "4' 2" (1.60mts)";
        $aHeight[2] = "4' 5" (1.70mts)";


        ' trying to display special characters
        ' by mixing up :-( of php and html looks like this.


        $i = 1
        while ($i <= 3) {

        ' $height is from db with two

        !strcmp($i,$height) ? $sSelected="selected" : $sSelected ="";
        print "<option value=\"." $i"\"".$sSelected."
        clean($aHeight[$i])."</option>"
        ++$i;
        }
        ?>

        code ends here
        --


        Instead of displaying the required html the output html has prints the
        special characters (") without converting them to " like this

        <!-- html listbox -->
        4' 2" (1.60mts)
        4' 5" (1.70mts)

        Hope I have not confused you all.

        Best Regards
        B Karthick
