Just a followup -- if you want to show other websites on your own
page, a friendly way to do this is using an iframe:


<h2><a href="<?php echo $site?>"><?php echo $site?></a></h2>
<iframe src="<?php echo $site?>" frameborder="0" title="<?php echo
$site?>" width="80%" height="200px"><span
style="color:red;font-weight:bold;">Your browser does not support

That way, the site gets the hit, and you aren't copying anything. If
you do go this way, make sure to provide a break out so the user can
open the target site in a new window/tab.
