Almost for sure, nope. Run a test for yourself. >Also, on Regular Expression replacements: > >$text = eregi_replace("([abc]+)", "<span style=\"color: red\">\\1</span>", $text); > >Would this replace any occurences of the pattern with the same pattern >match in red text? I'm not sure exactly how the \\1, \\2, etc. works. So, does: Yes, for those browsers that understand the span tag. A quick test script in PHP would have been faster than asking... :-) >$text = eregi_replace("(a)(b)(c)", "\\1", $text); > >Does this output only the 'a'? I find this confusing for some reason, >hehe. Any help would be great! Yes. If you had \\2 and \\3 somewhere, they'd be 'b' and 'c' respectively. Again a quick test script in PHP would have been faster... -- Like Music? http://l-i-e.com/artists.htm -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
