Dear All,

Thankyou very much all.

and work fine very well.

Could you help me on my search result formatting? Currently very bad. I could not solve the problem.
I want to make a better/clean result page and all the english word must be left align in the table.

here is the screenshot from the result.
http://screencast.com/t/OIHBshH1Mp

for ($i=0; $i <$num_results; $i++)
while($data = mysql_fetch_array($result))

{     
echo "<br />";
echo"<table border='1'>";

		echo "<tr>";
		echo "<td align='left'>";
		echo "{$data['engword']}";
		echo "</td>";
		echo "<td  align='left'>";
		echo "<a href=\"http://localhost/dict/audio_en/{$data['engword']}.mp3\" target='new' class='popup-link' title=\"open the audio file for the word {$data['engword']} \" >
		<img src='audio.gif' alt = open the audio file for the word {$data['engword']} ></a>";
		echo "</td>";
		echo "<td  align='left'>";
		echo (stripslashes($data["mword"]));
		echo"<td>";
		
echo"</tr>";

echo "</table>";
}

mysql_close($db);

?>
</body>
</html>

many thanks in advance,

saya.

while you're printing the results via while cycle,
you should place the table start and </table> closing tag out of thr while cycle.

if you determine a table, let set a default width. like:
<table width="434" border="1">

And you code is not valid, images and their ALT tag should placed between bouble qoutes (").
