</select>
Array
(
    [size] => Array
        (
			[X879] => Array
			(
				[0] => Array
				(
		            [item_id] => 32
		            [value] => small
		            [id] => 2
		            [aid] => 10
				)

//code may need cleaning up
foreach ($sel_arr as $sel_name => $opt_arr) {
	echo "<select name=\"{$sel_name}\"";
    if(strcmp($sel_name, "size")==0)
		foreach ($opt_arr as $opt_val => $opt2){
				echo "<option value=\"{$opt_val}\">{$opt2[0]['value']}/{$opt2[1]['value']}</option>";
		}
	else if(strcmp($sel_name, "quantity")==0)
