I did a search in the Php Manual...but did not understand what I was looking
I will look closer...Is this the link you were referring to.

I must only enter an animal once ...and I want to have users update the
database...sort of a DMOZ directory...with an editor/moderator approach for
the different breeds/animals.
I would like to have someone comment on whether the 2 tables mentioned would
suffice and what functions...or code would be better to apply.
Michael Koifler  sp?  in a book is purported to have a solution for
heirarchical display...but I am over budget now on this project so if any
one has seen this book and could help I would appreciate the code...until I
can afford the book.
see the tables in the original post below.
