HELP!!! I am trying to have my data displayed in 4 colums wide on my page, can anyone help! Here is the code:


//connect include
require ("connect.php");

//extract data
$extract = mysql_query ("SELECT * FROM people ORDER BY id ASC");
$numrows = mysql_num_rows ($extract);

while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc ($extract))

$id = $row['id'];
$firstname = $row['firstname'];
$lastname = $row['lastname'];
$dob = $row['dob'];
$gender = $row['gender'];

if ($gender=="F")
$gender = "Female";
$gender = "Male";

echo "$firstname $lastname<br> was born on $dob<br> and is $gender<br /><br />";

the best way is to use tables:

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))

echo "<tr>";
echo "<td>" . $firstname. "</td>";
echo "<td>" . $lastname. "</td>";
echo "<td>" . "was born on". "</td>";
echo "<td>" . $dob. "</td>";
echo "<td>" . $gender. "</td>";
echo "</tr>";
