Actually I would recommend $HTTP_GET_VARS['emladr']; over $_GET as it helps to secure the site a bit better.

The PHP Manual says that superglobals are preferred, and that the $HTTP_*_VARS arrays are deprecated and likely to go away in a future release. (You will be able to turn them off in PHP5. This isn't and won't be the case with superglobals.)

Found this from PHP manual:

Since PHP 4.1.0, the preferred method for retrieving external variables is with the superglobals mentioned below. Before this time, people relied on either register_globals or the long predefined PHP arrays ($HTTP_*_VARS). As of PHP 5.0.0, the long PHP predefined variable arrays may be disabled with the register_long_arrays directive.

emladr should be in double or single quotes

Single, though I don't think that should actually matter in the code...

Double, if you want to use variable interpolation:

$i = 2;
$_GET["something$i"] -->> $_GET["something2"]
$_GET['something' . $i] -->> $_GET["something2"]
$_GET['something$i'] -->> error (probably)

At any rate, keewooi pointed that out in the first response to this question.
