Use arsort(), and while you're in the manual (
<>  ) familiarise yourself with
all the other sort functions (and array functions in general). There's some
useful stuff there that you might not expect, and therefore not look for.

        Subject:  problems sorting an associative array...

        any help would be mych appreciated!
        i'm trying to sort an associative array, but when i do, the key is
        converted into a number (it should be a string). ie:

        $email_array["[EMAIL PROTECTED]"]=1;
        $email_array["[EMAIL PROTECTED]"]=4;
        $email_array["[EMAIL PROTECTED]"]=10;
        rsort ($email_array);

        i'm trying to sort by the value and then echo out the key and value
        together, but when i do, the key is always a number, rather than the
        email address that i wanted. any ideas??
