a little more clarification,

these are outputing information submitted on a previous form with the values stored in the session; see code below, I would like to not have 3 different elseif echos and use the same elseif for de, fr, and nl which are the values of three different countries submitted on the previous form, only one will be stored in the session.  
			elseif ($_SESSION['country'] == 'de'){
			 echo
            	"You'll need a phone with GPS on a GSM Network<br />
				<div id=\"plans\">
			 <div class=\"plan_left\">
				<p class=\"notice\">
     				<input type=\"checkbox\" name=\"plan\" id=\"plan\" value=\"12.95_eu\" /><img src=\"images/spacer.gif\" width=\"15\" height=\"1\">
					Unlimited &euro;12.95/month<br />
					<img src=\"images/spacer.gif\" width=\"1\" height=\"10\"><br />
					<span class=\"sm-text\">Use as much as you'd like - This plan includes<br />
					Location History: See current location and history<br />
					Speeding Alerts: Customize</span><br />
   				</p>
			 </div>
			 <div class=\"plan_right\">
			 	<img src=\"images/blackberry_w_target.jpg\" width=\"111\" border=\"0\" />
			 </div>
        	</div> 
			<br />";
			} //end div

Make sure I understand correctly - $_SESSION['country'] will be any ONE of de,fr or nl? And you want to see if $_SESSION['country'] is any one of those values? If this is the case, then in_array() is definitely what you need, we just need to figure out why it's not doing what you expect in your usage.

Are you able to post the whole script here?

This line works:
elseif ($_SESSION['country'] == 'DE'||$_SESSION['country'] == 'NL'){
echo //somecode
}

This one does too, but still only for DE and NL, FR does not work for some reason:
elseif ($_SESSION['country'] == 'DE'||$_SESSION['country'] == 'NL'||$_SESSION['country'] == 'FR'){
echo //somecode
}

Scratch that, it does work.  Was access in wrong test space.  Thank you for your help though, if there is a cleaner way to do this using in_array I'd very much like to know how.  If not, I'll wait a few hours and assign points for your help.  thank you!
