i think you may have messed up your opening PHP tag (the space). But it doesn't require you go to the trouble you have in terms of HTML - it accepts:

<?php

$name = "Mike";
echo $name;

but still there is error any advice plz

it just passed the test with:

<?php
  $name ="Mike";

  ?>
<doctype html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Mike</title>
  </head>
  <h1> <?php echo $name ?> </h1>
  <body>
  </body>
  </html>

only real difference is the space in "<? php" being removed.
