I'm new to PHP (i'm a Java programmer by trade), and i'm learning PHP. I'm writing a little app to teach myself, and i'd like to check with an experienced php programmer if what i'm doing sounds ok.

When someone POSTs a form, any field that fails validation is added to an array called $errors, and the user is sent back to the page. The tpl uses this code to highlight the field in red if it's in the array:


{if array_search('website', $errors)}
  <font color="red">Manufacturer Website</font>
  Manufacturer Website

I also want to pre-populate the fields they've already typed in, so they don't have to retype the whole form if they make one mistake. My approach for this is all the fields values are put into another array, the field name is the key and the value they submitted is the value. The tpl file will look up this array and populate the form with this. I'm having a little trouble with that last step, I posted about it here.

Does this design pattern seem ok? I tried vDaemon first, it was fine, but my debugger didn't like it.

Many thanks for any thoughts.
