I think the task editor is broken

I am pretty sure I am doing this task correctly but it says I'm not.

index.php
<?php

$name = "Mike";

?>

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

  <body>

      <h1><?php echo $name ?></h1>

  </body>
</html>

No need for the html, just write your echo inside of your original php block.
