    1. It depends on what you mean, exactly. If you want a field of checkboxes, then use checkboxes. If you want pulldown menus with multiple choices, use select boxes with a "multiple" option like so:

    <select name="colors[]" multiple="multiple">

    2. Either way, you'll need to parse through the array of results to get the data you want. Something like:

    foreach ($colors as $c){
    echo $c; //do something with $c
    }

    Cool?
