      Description

      While trying to fix MDL-14336 I came across nasty code within mod/data/lib.php that uses a mismatch of single and double quotes like this:

      echo '<option value="$cid">'.$currentfield->name.'</option>';

      which led not to solve $cid into its value, but printing out "$cid" to the HTML source instead. I have cleaned up the whole quotes related code within if (!empty($currentfields) && !empty($newfields)) { } and also added linebreaks after option tags to prevent making kilometers long lines of HTML code. Now the resulting table also displays properly, previously it got cut down somehow.

          Here is the patch against MOODLE_19_STABLE. Should be committed asap, since the current code CAN'T work.

          Petr,

          I noticed that your change of mod/data/lib.php in HEAD (http://cvs.moodle.org/moodle/mod/data/lib.php?r1=1.151&r2=1.152) was not limited to the reported problem. In addition, you reverted Dongsheng's commit http://cvs.moodle.org/moodle/mod/data/lib.php?r1=1.146&r2=1.147 as part of MDL-14129. Could you please explain?

          Thanks.
