<ul><?php foreach($flavors as $flavor) { ?>
    <li><?php echo $flavor1; ?></li>
    <li><?php echo $flavor2; ?></li>
  <?php } ?>

I think the confusion lies in it trying to explain where exactly to put the code "after the ul but before the li" etc.

Thanks Tawny!

I get confused with the PHP tags within HTML โ€”ย not sure if I fully understand why first line of the PHP closing tag is straight after the opening { ??? โ€”I just find it odd that it's possible and not really getting the logic of that particular bit of PHP.

Thanks again for your help,

Hi Philip! :)

Yeah, it's a fairly new concept for me too! You just need to remember that any HTML you put needs to be outside of the PHP tags as the HTML doesn't need to be parsed.

The top bit of http://php.net/manual/en/language.basic-syntax.phpmode.php might help get your head around it! :)
