I am trying to mimmick the tenplate shown.
But I get a parse error where I have $myurl.

I believe it is becaause of the dot.
How do I work around this?


<!-- single playlist entry as an "template" -->
<a class="item" href="http://mroldies.net/videos/1960/summerplace.flv">
A Summer Place - Movie Theme <span>Percy Fiath Orchestra</span>
<em>1960 # 1</em>
</a>

<?php

$aid=1;

while ($aid<21)
{
echo "< a class='item'"

$myurl='href="http://mroldies.net/videos/"';
echo $myurl;

echo "\n";
echo $playme[$aid][0];
echo "<span>";
echo $playme[$aid][1];
echo "</span>\n";
echo "<em>>$playme[$aid][2]</em>\n";

echo "</a";

$aid++;
}


?>

$aid = 1;
while ($aid < 21)
{
$myurl = "<a class='item'
href='http://mroldies.net/videos/{$playme[$aid][0]}'\n<span>{$playme[$aid][1]}</span>\n<em>{$playme[$aid][2]}</em >\n</a>\n";

echo $myurl;
$aid++;
}

-or-

$aid = 1;
while ($aid < 21)
{
$myurl = "<a class='item' href='http://mroldies.net/video/";
$myurl .= "{$playme[$aid][0]}'\n ";
$myurl .= "<span>{$playme[$aid][1]}</span>\n";
$myurl .= "<em>{$playme[$aid][2]}</em>\n</a>\n";

echo $myurl;
$aid++;
}

-or HEREDOC syntax-

$aid = 1;
while ($aid < 21)
{
echo <<<HTML

<a class="item" href="http://mroldies.net/video/{$playme[$aid][0]}"
<span>{$playme[$aid][1]}</span>
<em>{$playme[$aid][2]}</em>
</a>

HTML;
$aid++;
}

Do what you like. My preference is to have my HTML (in code) look
pretty close to what I expect to see in the browser (view source).

Ineptocracy

(in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to
lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the
members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are
rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a
diminishing number of producers.

Mine too, it makes it a lot easier to debug broken html, and I think I
probably don't generate as much broken stuff in the first place with
heredoc, simply because there's less escaping etc needed.

I see Richard still hasn't learned to run his html through the validator,
see where it fails to validate and track that back to his php code before
bringing his broken html issues here though. And these are html issues,
not php ones - his php is outputting the exact strings he's telling it
to, he's just put duff content in those strings.

By the way, just as a fyi everyone, Richard has a clone called Nick in
the python group.

(Am I allowed to say python here?)

It would be nice if richard learnt to fix his trivial typos before
coming here.
