     i use a php file to return data to a java me mobile  phone application and i want to display this info in some sort of table as i do not like how it currently displays (see attachment) returned datai've seen some information regarding json  and am wondering if this is the way to go.... although it seems like overkill for what i want ...any advice appreciated...

// this contains MySQL connection info

//this creates a variable containing the
// MySQL username and password for connection
$sql = mysql_connect(localhost, $user, $pass)
   or die('Connection error: ' . mysql_error());

//this opens a session to the database that
// will be written to  
mysql_select_db($db, $sql)
   or die('Database selection failed.');

//this section defines the query to be fired at the database table
$query = "SELECT mobileNum, lat, lng FROM LiveOnSystem";
//execute the query
$result = mysql_query($query, $sql);
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
  echo $row['mobileNum'] . " "  . $row['lat'] ." "  . $row['lng'];
echo " [NEXT JOB]  ";
