Echo out all field names along with their respective values

I would like to print a list with all field names and their values from a table in a mysql database. How would i use a loop to print:

<table>
<tr>
<td>
FIELD NAME
</td>
<td>
FIELD VALUE
</td>
</table


Any help would be appreciated

UPDATE

The first field is a unique_id, how would i skip the first field? Say echo all from the second field

Answer

This is very basic PHP, a simple while-loop combined with a foreach would suffice:

echo '<table>';
$query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `your_table`");
// Loop over all result rows
while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($query)) {
    // Loop over all fields per row
    foreach($row as $field => $value) {
        echo '<tr><td>' . htmlentities($field) . '</td><td>' . htmlentities($value) . '</td></tr>';
    }
    // New data row can optionally be seperated with a blank line here
    echo '<tr><td colspan="2">&nbsp;</td></tr>';
}
echo '</table>';
