But it's the same answer ;-)
If you want to be completely warning-and-notice-free, you need to define
the variable before accessing it:

        // this will give a notice
        echo $undefined_var;

        // and this won't
        $define_var = 'some data, or simply put "null" here';
        echo $defined_var;

The same holds true for array indices:

        $test_array = array('One', 'Two', 'Three');

        // this will give a notice
        echo $test_array[3];

        // and this won't
        echo $test_array[2];

        // and this won't as well
        if (array_key_exists(3))
                echo $test_array[3];

Get the idea? IMHO it's complete overkill with PHP to predefine variables
since they're auto-initialized with NULL when used first. These notices are
only for the development cycle, to aid us in spotting a problem where you
expect some data to be there, but it aint because the variable name has
been mistyped...
