Let Cc(X)={fC(X):f(X) is countable}{C_c{{\char 40}}X{{\char 41}}} =\{\,f\in C(X): f(X) \hbox{ is countable}\}. Similar to C(X)C(X) it is observed that the sum of any collection of semiprime (resp. prime) ideals in the ring Cc(X){C_c{{\char 40}}X{{\char 41}}} is either Cc(X){C_c{{\char 40}}X{{\char 41}}} or a semiprime (resp. prime) ideal in Cc(X){C_c{{\char 40}}X{{\char 41}}} . For an ideal II in Cc(X){C_c{{\char 40}}X{{\char 41}}} , it is observed that II and I\sqrt{I} have the same largest zcz_c-ideal. If XX is any topological space, we show that there is a zero-dimensional space YY such that Cc(X)Cc(Y){C_c{{\char 40}}X{{\char 41}}} \cong {C_c{{\char 40}}Y{{\char 41}}} . Consequently, if XX has only countable number of components, then Cc(X)C(Y){C_c{{\char 40}}X{{\char 41}}} \cong C(Y) for some zero-dimensional space YY. Spaces X for which Cc(X){C_c{{\char 40}}X{{\char 41}}} is regular (called CPCP-spaces) are characterized both algebraically and topo log ically and it is shown that PP-spaces and CPCP-spaces coincide when XX is zero-dimensional. In contrast to C(X)C^*(X), we observe that Cc(X){C_c{{\char 40}}X{{\char 41}}} enjoys the algebraic properties of regularity, 0\aleph _{_0}-selfinjectivity and some others, whenever C(X)C(X) has these properties. Finally an example of a space XX such that Cc(X){C_c{{\char 40}}X{{\char 41}}} is not isomorphic to any C(Y)C(Y) is given.
