Need help requesting an array -

I have a form (not my form, a pre-packaged shopping cart which I am not able to change the functionality of without starting entirely from scratch)

It submits several values, including one that is submitted as an array.

<select name="id[9]">

and

<select name = "id[10]">

etc.

OK.  So I got the rest of the form values to work, but I cannot get the values of the ids to come across.  If I $REQUEST['id[9]'], I get no value.

If I request just id, I get a value = Array

Does anyone know how I can request the actual values of the array called ID?

Thank you in advance for your help.  This one really stumps me.

I thought that would work as well.  But it still gives me blank values for the array.
