$t=$row['title'];

I have tried numerous combinations of single and double quotes and I the
link still will not show up.While on my main page, and elsewhere, they show
up just fine. What am I missing?

It's time to laugh and bash stupid.
So go for it boys. Give it your best.

look at your source code in the browser and it may become evident.

The big problem for me was the damned caching.
I deleted the code for the table, uploaded the page and I was still seeing
the old table.

Are you sure $row['title'] is not blank? Even so, that code works
here and if it were blank you should still see:

<a href='#'>..</a>

in the source. That being said, are you really after:

echo "<a href='#'>".$t."</a>";

or

echo "<a href='#'>$t</a>";

A couple of suggestions.

When creating a large table, write a newline character after the closing
tag of every tr.

Use htmlspecialchars or htmlentities to preprocess text that you are
inserting into a web page. If your original data has a combination of
escaped and unescaped ampersands, you may need to set the double_encode
param to false.

Use a lang attribute for your html element.

Use utf-8.
