thanks for your advice but if you take a closer look at the patch you'll
notice that I haven't touched that part of the code other than indenting it.

And if you take a look at the bigger patch against the search_pkg_form.php I
send earlier you'll see that I quote like you recommend here :) (except that I
leave spaces for concatenating as IMHO it makes it easier on the eyes eg.  
"' . $variable . '" but that's a matter of taste I guess).

Agreed again + same thing here, take a look at the search_pkg_form.php
earlier, I've fixed all that in it ;) as I prefer single quotes in PHP over
double quotes as well (on the other hand for HTML if prefer doubles quotes
over single quotes ie: class="foo").

Thanks you for your feedback :).
