== is always handy. Depending on your needs, you may want to throw in a couple calls to strlower (if you don't care about case matching). If you are even more flexible, look into soundex, levenshtein, metaphone, and similar_text. They're all documented in the online manual, and each provides a different sort of flexibility for dealing with variant spelling, etc. miguel -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
