Not sure how to identify the first and last elements of the result... I need to append some html attributes. Currently I have this:

$getfiles = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM tblfiles WHERE fkey = '$thiskey' ORDER BY fkey ASC ") or die (mysql_error());
while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($getfiles))
echo '<p>'.$row['filename'].'</p>;

I need the output to be something like this for say results of 4 rows:

<p class="first">File 1</p>
<p>File 2</p>
<p>File 3</p>
<p class="last">File 4</p>
