Default repeating checkboxes problem

Hi Folks,

I am looping through a recordset ($result) containing different languages which I convert to values of html checkboxes, I want to compare the recordset values to array values ($arr_languages_spoken) and check the checkboxes that match. I think I am close, the code I have checks the right boxes but also duplicates every value from the recordset so I have 2 of each checkbox, any help would be appreciated, thanks.


while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result))
foreach ($arr_languages_spoken as $value)
if ($value == $row['language'])
echo "<input type=checkbox name=languages_spoken_1 value=".$row['language']." CHECKED/>".$row['language']." ";
else if ($value != $row['language'])
echo "<input type=checkbox name=languages_spoken_1 value=".$row['language']." />".$row['language']." ";
