Order by content value and echo while respecting order

in table rank I have three col A,B,C
A has a value of 2, B has a value of 6 and C has a value of 1
from there
how can I write the PHP part to echo the name of the col and the value
from higher to lower
so it will echo B: 6  A: 2 C: 1
Do I have to go with a switch and test for all combos (9 cases) that sounds heavy)
much more if in the future I add one or two more ranking possibilities.

If you put your columns into an array you can sort the array and then print...  Something like:

// Create a sample data set
$column['A'] = 2;
$column['B'] = 6;
$column['C'] = 1;


foreach ($column as $key => $value){
     echo $key.': '.$value;
