Let Y be a compact Hausdorff space equipped with a closed partial ordering. Let / be a linear ordering that either does not have a maximal element or does not have a minimal element. We further assume that (X.I) has the Tietze extension property for order preserving continuous functions from X to /. Denote by M( X, !) the lattice of order preserving continuous functions from X to /. We generalize a theorem of Kaplanski [K], and show that as a lattice alone, M( X, I) characterizes X as an
