I have to agree with Phil and Mr. van Ouwerkerk. I am a newbie too, and while 
we may miss things in the manual that are obvious to more experienced 
programmers, or ask questions that have been asked and answered in the list 
over and over again (guilty here!), I believe an attempt should at least be 
made to find the answer before asking the experts in the mailing list. 
Newbies like myself should remember that most people who are subscribed to 
this list are very busy with work and projects and are being quite generous 
to contribute free advice to those of us who are less knowledgeable. Here are 
some useful resources I turn to when I'm seeking a PHP-related answer:
