Answer: Because PHP is a loose-typed lanague.

== will evaluate to TRUE if the two values CAN be shown to be equal
within reason.

Calling 1.1 equal to 1.10 is within reason.

You clearly know about the === comparison type so I won't bother
pointing that out.

Description:
------------
I excepted true if one of the compared variable was numeric,
because of type juggling rules (Appendix K. PHP type comparison
tables), but false when the 2
variables are string.
In this case == and === must have the same result.

Reproduce code:
---------------
$a=(string)"1.1";
$b=(string)"1.10";
if($a==$b) echo "equal";
else echo "different";


Expected result:
----------------
different

Actual result:
--------------
equal
