It's not a problem. Just refer to it using elements[]

That's not the problem. The problem is referring to the listbox via
javascript. It doesn't like the format: formName.listBoxName[].value it
has no problem with formName.listBoxName.value but then PHP doesn't seem
to handle it correctly.

Place the countries in array. Name the select with your array name.

<select name="<?=$yourarrayname?>" >

and for the <option> use as value the keys from the array.Where your
keys may be the IDs of the countires from the db.

        Hey Guys,
        I'm populating a multiselect list with countries from my
database. PHP
        seems to require the name contain array brackets, ie. myName[].
        problem I'm having is referring to the select list via
javascript when
        the name contains the brackets. Anyone know how?
