In a PHP form to Email I have 5 Checkboxes such as:

<input type="checkbox" name="Subject_Requested[]" id="English" value="English" />English
<input type="checkbox" name="Subject_Requested[]" id="Science" value="Science" />Science
<input type="checkbox" name="Subject_Requested[]" id="Maths"  value="Maths" /> Maths

I need to print/echo only the one that has been checked by the user:
Since the output is sent by email i included all the variables inside of the email "body" such as:

===========================================
$body ="

foreach ($Subject_Requested as $value) {
echo $value.'<br />'
};"

=============================================

But it does not seem to work. I know I should create the loop outside the "body" and then call the function, but I do not know how and I am not sure if I am right :-)

Please help..........

I had the following test files:

<form action="test.php" method="post">
<input type="checkbox" name="Subject_Requested[]" id="English" value="English" />English
<input type="checkbox" name="Subject_Requested[]" id="Science" value="Science" />Science
<input type="checkbox" name="Subject_Requested[]" id="Maths"  value="Maths" /> Maths
<INPUT type="submit" value="Send">
</form>
----------------
<?php

foreach ($Subject_Requested as $value) {
echo $value.'<br />';
}

?>

and it worked fine?
