If you have hundred thousand elements for example if you rob up for some
country select within tierce code-

I thinks doing like the following is better

echo "<select>
    <option selected>$value
</select>" ;

And I don't care if it could have 2 same value in the select case...

And if there aren't many value, I think the following  sounds better:

echo "
<SELECT CLASS=select NAME=qual>
<OPTION ".($qual==A?" SELECTED":"").">A
<OPTION ".($qual==B?" SELECTED":"").">B
<OPTION ".($qual==C?" SELECTED":"")." >C</OPTION>
</SELECT>" ;

Subject: [PHP] checkboxes and selection lists

Hi, as a beginner I find the way you declare variables through HTML-forms
quite straightforward. But the reverse, to put the same variables back into
a form field is not so obvious for selection lists and checkboxes. Would for
instance this be the best way:

<SELECT CLASS="select" NAME="qual">
<OPTION VALUE="A" <?=if($qual=='A'){return 'SELECTED'}?>>A</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="B" <?=if($qual=='B'){return 'SELECTED'}?>>B</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="C" <?=if($qual=='C'){return 'SELECTED'}?>>C</OPTION>

or would there be something more elegant?

Thanks, Marco
