So you are taking your results and putting it in an array, right? And you
basically want to create two rows in your result array, for each row in the

$result = mysql_query("SELECT Title, Alt_Title, Size, Price, More, Comment
FROM table");
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
  $Title["Title"][] = $row["Title"];
  $Title["Size"][] = $row["Size"];
  $Title["Price"][] = $row["Price"];
  $Title["More"][] = $row["More"];
  $Title["Comment"][] = $row["Comment"];

  if($row["Alt_Title"] != "")
    $Title["Title"][] = $row["Alt_Title"];
    $Title["Size"][] = $row["Size"];
    $Title["Price"][] = $row["Price"];
    $Title["More"][] = $row["More"];
    $Title["Comment"][] = $row["Comment"];

?? Like that. That'll basically take the results and for each row in the
result, make two rows in $Title, one with the title set to the DB:Title, the
other to DB:Alt_Title. It only creates the second row if the alt_title isn't
an empty string, too. Don't know if that's nec. in your case.

I'm sure there are other ways...maybe a different table design would be
better, too.
