A couple of days ago I placed a post regarding using the $_POST[] variable in an insert sql query. Both

$sql="insert into $table set Name = '".$_POST['elementName']."'";
$sql="insert into $table set Name = '{$_POST['elementName']}'";

worked perfectly. Thanks to everyone for your help. My question now is regarding the curly brackets in the 2nd example. Can anyone describe why using the curly brackets works and/or how php processes them. I have read quite a bit about php and never come accross thier use in this way. Thanks again.
