So it seems - but I've been looking a bit around the code and one thing
really annoys me about the changes - that it seems that there's no
consistency in the use of outputting HTML-code - and there has been a
lot of changes in that I can see... A lot of places the source code has
been changed from echoing HTML - to including embedded HTML with echoing
of a single PHP-variable (jumping in and out of PHP code execution).

So I really think a code-cleanup in this matter is required - we eighter

<?php echo "some_html_here_and_a_variable_here"; ?> 


some_html_here_<?php echo "outputting_a_PHP_variable_here"; ?>

I hope you understand what I'm trying to illustrate - but in case you
don't - try having a look at:


And specially the marked changes from Line 77 (in old version) and

My suggestion is to always use of echoing all output via the PHP echo
function-call instead of using the jumping in and out of PHP method
making it a lot easier and quick to alter PHP code in the future.

Kind regards
