Recommended Form Upload Component?

A client wants to enable fiile uploads via their web site. The web site is hosted outside the company and the files need to be uploaded to their FTP server which is hosted within or on-site at the company. Thus far all the components I've looked into upload to the web server. Is this simply the only option? Can anyone recommend a good component or alternate method? PHP, ASP are fine.

BBEdit equivalency?

On the Mac, if I need to munge text in extremis, I prefer to use BBEdit. Recently, on the PC, I am finding myself in need of a text editor which is similar to BBEdit.

Transforming XML with XSL

I need a new way of transforming XML with XSL. Till date I've used PHP's Sablotron, which I absolutely love and is simple to use, but my host keeps forgetting to enable and include it each time they recompile Apache, so I was wondering if someone here knows of a way to do the same with either Perl or JSP/Tomcat or even PHP as long as it is without Sablotron's xslt_create().

Best solution for a website for a christening present?

I have a friend whose baby is getting christened. As a little present I'd like to provide them with an easy-to-operate website through which they can store and display photos of the child as he progresses, and supply news (essentially a blogging factor). Though I'll be setting it up and am pretty good at tech-stuff, the operators of the website (the parents) aren't so it'll need to be as simple as possible for them to do things like upload photos and post news of the baby. PHP content management systems seem like the logical solution, and I've looked at a few ideas (like using Gallery for the photos, and embedding it in a site) but I was wondering what do you all recommend?

What's your idea of PHP best practices?

PHP programmers: what would a well-laid-out PHP project look like to you? I'm a computer science grad student who's never used PHP for anything much and not in many years, but I now have an opportunity to write a small-to-moderate-sized site for somebody and thought I'd give PHP another go. I'm well versed in generally writing tasteful programs and I even have a pretty decent amount of experience with writing web sites using other technologies; what I'm really interested in is specifically how PHP programmers use the language in practice to make maintainable sites. For instance, what's the best way to separate content from HTML so it's easier to make site-wide HTML tweaks? What are the sorts of things that you wish someone had told you about how to build PHP projects?

how to display image files on a web page

Windows Explorer has an option to display all the image files in a folder in "filmstrip" mode, which looks like this. I want to create a similar method of display on a web page. I figure I'll have to (unfortunately) use frames to create the bottom gallery of thumbnails and have it scroll like that but I would rather not have to create a separate page for each full-size picture. I would rather the page displaying the picture be dynamic and just change the picture rather than refer the browser to a different file. I figure this could be done with some scripting language (PHP?) but I don't know much about that sort of thing. Can anyone help me out? [+] [more inside]

Password-Protection

Is there a script (perl or php, no MySQL because I don't understand it and don't want to learn it) that password-protects a webpage so that it can be viewed only by someone who logs in with a username and a password, and also logs that user, so that you can have a record (very important) of who's viewed the page? If so, where can I get me one?

PHP Refresh Scripts: Fork

Ok, so I have a php script that updates a txt file on my server with data pulled from an rss feed on Scrobbler. I have it set to refresh the feed when a user accesses a page on my site, and the local txt file is stale. There's (obviously) a noticeable lag accessing this page when the feed is being refreshed. My question: Is there a way to call the refresh script such that it would be its own process, independent of my pagebuilding script.

HTML cleanup in comment boxes

FilterFilter: Recent forays into php programming have lead me to the conclusion that it's really hard to stop people adding javascript hacks, dodgy html and injected SQL queries into the box which says "post this to my site". Are there any known, good and actively managed libraries which allow me to sanitize any html entered in, for example, comment boxes so that I can stop the hacker ownzering my site?

Are there freeware/open source as good as Gallery but that work on WebTV?

My dad uses WebTV to surf the net and send email. However, we're discovering that he can't see pages that end in .php, which rules out my Gallery site, which is one of the main reasons he got on the net in the first place.
