When you use mysql_fetch_array you're actually retrieving an array with 
two copies of the value you're looking for. One is indexed by the column 
number and one indexed by the column name. So it looks like you're 
looping through them both and printing each out. You might want 
mysql_fetch_assoc (to use just the column name) or mysql_fetch_row (to 
use just the column number)
