I can't seem to get the

> echo <select name="$foo[$key];

to echo anything--I've modified it so that it runs, adding the needed 
quotation marks and everything. I don't get any errors, it simple echoes 

Any suggestions?

On another note the rest of it works like a charm. Thanks for the help 
so far.
