I haven't really been following this thread, so I apologise if I've
missed the point, but I don't see what's so hard about persisting
selected values...


As far as the quality of information on the internet goes... were you
actually born yesterday? Of course it sucks. If you want my advice you
should buy a book to learn the basics. I can't really recommend one
'cause it's been a while since I've looked at a PHP book but you can
pretty much guarantee that any book from the major technical
publishers will have gone through several layers of checks before they
printed it.

Beyond that you need to learn how to read the manual. The description
of in_array at http://php.net/in_array could not be any clearer if it
tried - it even has examples. If you disagree then you should "fix" it
and submit a patch to the documentation team. The only way open source
stuff gets better is if you contribute changes when you think
something can be improved.

And with that I'm off to the zoo for the day!
