Exclude a div from specific URL

I have a section of faqs. I want the index page of that section to be exempted from displaying a certain div. At the moment, I've got this working...

<?
$url=$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
if ( strstr( $url, "faq/" ) )
echo "";
else
echo "<div>groovy stuff</div>";
?>


However, this is omitting the div from every page of the faq directory. I've been trying to figure something out with preg_match but I'm getting nowhere. I can't figure how to detect that the 'faq/' is the end of the URL and I only want to exclude the div that specific URL, and continue to display the div on every other page of the site.

Any pointers? It would also be nice if I could find a way to exlude a list of URLs, rather than just one.

Would something like parse_url [php.net] work?

$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']


Take a look at this variable :)

Thanks for commenting folks. I think I've got it working with the following, can you see any potential problem with it? I'm a bit of a php duffer but I'm havin' a go and learning...

<?
$uri=$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
if($uri == "/example-directory/faq/")
echo "";
else
echo "<div>groovy stuff</div>";
?>
