Why does the following statement act as if the "IF" wasn't there?
if ($variable = "x y") {variable2 = 10;}

??? It assumes I mean:
variable2 = 10;

*confused*

Cheers,
Dave

Well... 'cause you use wrong condition... for logic, you have to use '==' instend. That at mean ... if($variable == "x y") {$variable2 = 10}
