Hi Marc,
Now that my exams are finished :), I have started to look at the script
"tbl_select.php" for planning the refactoring.
As the script is used for searching a table using a form in the UI, it
contains two sections:-
1. If block that "displays the selection form".
2. else to do the search work.

Looking at the search form display part, it is done using raw HTML-PHP mix
with calls to functions from some library files, so first main concern
should be to handle the HTML-PHP mix and convert the code into functions.
About that I saw the wiki page for Roadmap to 4.0 [0] :-
 "The current <html> and <?php> mix will be cleaned up in the process. The
<html> output will be moved to lib/include files which can be called by
either the index page or by the specific files (which can still be
referenced separately)."

So, to move HTML to lib/include files, slicing proper reusable HTML blocks
from the script should be done, followed by moving it to a lib/include
file, and then calling the include file at proper places. Is this the way,
I should proceed ?
