Success. After a bit of tinkering :) and reading up. Thanks for the ideas.
Now one last question. here is my array $authors: http://ccl.flsh.usherb.ca/db/authors_under_study.php sorted alphabetically. How do I go about sorting again it so it renders: Aguiar, Flavio 1 Andrade, Mario de 1 Ashcroft, W.D. 1 Atwood, Margaret 3 Auden, W. H. 3 Bernabé, Jean 1 Birney, Earle 4 Basically, I want to start a new array (do i have to?) and count every time an author appears, eliminating repetition.
