Thank you very much for all the ideas.

"Printing it out" and the "print_r( $_GET )" of all the incoming variables
did it, along with some caffeine.

In case any future people are interested, the array results from an HTML
form multiple select box like:

        <select name='blight[]' multiple=\"multiple\">
        <option value='unknown'>unknown</option>
        <option value='on trunk'>on trunk</option>

do in fact come nicely back in PHP 4 in at least one way:


(so I didn't need to refer to the specific array keys at all in this part;
$blight is an array)
then I entered it into my linking MySQL table as:

foreach ($blight as $blightid)

                "INSERT INTO blightlink
                (treeid, blightid)

                $resultInsertBlightLink =

Thanks again!
