You have to insert the '<?php ?>' tags and place '$name = 'Mike';` between them. It doesn't have to be all on one line; you can have each on their own line.


Note: I have been trying to learn PHP for years and it looks like I will FINALLY be able to learn this. I am a program designer, but do not know how to code.....YET! But this is changing quick!
