if logic that figures into it a minumum string length


the attached code works great -

<li " . ($value['link']=="faqs" ? "style=\"padding:0 2px 0 2px;\"": "").">

says that if the parameter is "faqs" add padding to the <li>

i'm wondering if there's a way to do this but instead of ($value['link']=="faqs"  being the parameter, some sort of miniumum string length serving as the parameter instead like:

<li " . (stringlenth<4 characters ? "style=\"padding:0 2px 0 2px;\"": "").">

function showMenu ( $menu_array, $toplevel, $page, $subpage ) {
                global $d, $ak;
                //Display the top level elements.
                echo "<ul>\n";
                foreach($menu_array as $key => $value):
                        if ($toplevel):
                                $url = "index.php?page=" . $value['link'];
                                $active = ($page == $value['link']) ? "class=\"active\"" : "";
                                $url = "index.php?page=$page&amp;subpage=" . $value['link'];
                                $active = ($subpage == $value['link']) ? "class=\"active\"" : "";
                        $target = menus::getTarget($value['target'], $url);
                        //If user is logged in, change login page link to read logout
                        if (count($_SESSION['clientuser']) && strcmp(strtolower($value['link']), 'sign_in') == 0)
                                $value['title'] = 'Logout';
                        //Do not show item if it is restricted in access and user is not logged in.
                        if ($value['restricted'] && !count($_SESSION['clientuser'])):
                                echo "\t<li " . ($value['link']=="faqs" ? "style=\"padding:0 2px 0 2px;\"": "")."><a href=\"" . menus::checksef($url) . "\" $target $active tabindex=\"" . $ak->tabindex($key) . "\">". $value['title'] ."</a></li>\n";
                echo "</ul>\n";
