I know.  So does the HTML recommendation which states that it is a
boolean attribute, meaning it is stated (on/boolean 1) or it isn't
(off/boolean 0) in the HTML context.  So while other variations may
work, this is correct:

For multiple select:
<SELECT multiple name="component-select">


For single select:
<SELECT name="component-select">

 & other variations; then theres in_array() that has

Rather than copying and pasting from the Internet, learn the basics of
what you are doing and then use the documentation.  php.net has GREAT
docs and w3c.org is the answer for all of your HTML/CSS needs.
