I have some code I use to create pulldown menus. It's as follows;

$categoryarry = array("","1","2","3","4","5");
while (list($key,$value) = each($categoryarry)) {
  if ($value == $srch_cat) {
    $cat_option .= "<option value=\"$value\"selected>$value</option>\n";
  } else {
    $cat_option .= "<option value=\"$value\">$value</option>\n";

It works fine when the pulldown value and displayed text are the same, ie.

<option value="John">John</option>

But now I would like to change so the value is different then what's
displayed in the menu, ie.

<option value="1">John</option>

I've never used two dimensional arrays but I thought it might be what I need
to look into. Or should I have to arrays and use one for the value and the
other for the item displayed in the pulldown menu.

Any help appreciated.
