But "11.1" doesn't come before "2.5" when you ksort() an array. And I
don't think you need to explain the difference between $array[1.2] and
$array["1.2"]; just tell them to always use quotes "so that everything
works correctly" (except maybe use more words :) and leave the
explanation to the PHP folks.

Gee ... perl is looking better and better as an implementation
language ;-)
