[wp-hackers] Using eval within Wordpress for a function mixed with html

You're problem appears to be that you are programming when you should be 
developing. Take for example your situation. You want a complex solution 
to a simple problem. If you were a developer, you would use the simple 
solution for the simple problem. The simple solution would be one that 
does not involve eval(). I think that if you gave us more code, we'd be 
able to get to the root of your problem and fix the cause instead of 
implementing something to cover it up.
