Hi Matt,

 Well, okay, i understand and will try. Please take a look in the manuel too.

each() will return a array and sets the array pointer to the next element of 
the input array. The returned array contains the key and the value of the 
input array element. This function returns false when the end of the array 
reached.
List() makes a list of the values of an array.

So we do list($key,$value)=each($row) to walk trought the whole array we put 
this statement in a while loop. 

> the the value is not null then ??? don't understand the || $i==0

The first time you walk trought this while loop $i is 0, all other loops it 
is not 0 (cause the $i++ in the loop)

We need this, cause you said in your explanation. that you would the first 
element always ($i==0) and the other element only when there are not null 
values (empty($value))

> where are the column title being displayed for each row ??
the function mysql_fetch_row($database_result)
return an array with the column title/name (more exactly the name you have 
used in your query, SELECT column1, column2, so i mean  column1 here ) as key 
en the fieldvalue assinged to it as value. The result pointer is also set to 
the next row.

BE: 
--
$result=mysql_query=("SELECT name, address FROM users");
$row=mysql_fetch_row($result);
will be the same as:
$row["name"]="Matt";
$row["address"]="The Street 1";
--

So $key above is the same as your column title.
