Catching up on old messages. Sorry this isn't more timely.

I've only done a little PHP coding, but the most useful resource I've
found (besides php.net, which is excellent) is the O'Reilly PHP Pocket
Reference. For me, it's a lot easier (and cheaper) to pick up the basics
from online tutorials and then have a small reference to glance at, rather
than trying to use a more in-depth book for both purposes. I hate having
an entire library on my desk for every project.
