hi

my select options are getting echo as upper case

PHP Code:
<select>
<option><? echo strtoupper($row['category_name']); ?></option>
</select>
there are some option names that contain "&" sign. So I am replacing that sign with "&amp;"

PHP Code:
$row['category_name'] = str_replace("&""&amp;"$row['category_name']); 
but this outputs "&amp" as uppercase "&AMP" which gives error while validating the code

Code:
WALL &AMP; CAR CHARGER
how can i have "&amp" in lowercase and rest in uppercase
