    real links.

$i = 0, $j = count($textarray); $i < $j; $i++) {
   
// Turn HTTP and FTP URLs into links

nice but i`d make one change:-

$textarray[$i] = preg_replace("/((ht|f)tp:\/\/[^\s&]+)/", "&lt;a href=\"$1\"&gt;$1&lt;/a&gt;", $textarray[$i]); 

to

$textarray[$i] = preg_replace("/((http|ftp|https):\/\/[^\s&]+)/", "&lt;a href=\"$1\"&gt;$1&lt;/a&gt;", $textarray[$i]);
