My code seems correct in my personal IDE (PHPStorm) yet is deemed incorrect in the T^2H challenge window.

Help... me... Spock! The code up in this here code challenge works just fine in my local PHPStorm + MAMP implementation... que paso?

Diga mi todo!

<?php $movie = array(
  "title"=>"The Empire Strikes Back",
  "director"=>"Irvin Kershner",
  <h1><?php echo $movie["title"]; ?> (<?php echo $movie["year"]; ?>)</h1>

      <td><?php echo $movie["director"]; ?></td>
      <th>IMDB Rating</th>
      <td><?php echo $movie["imdb_rating"]; ?></td>
      <th>IMDB Ranking</th>
      <td><?php echo $movie["imdb_ranking"]; ?></td>

The error message I get is that "The HTML isn't quite right..."

Hi Kevin,

The challenge starts off with code that does not include html tags. Removing these tags will pass the challenge.

While this next issue is not an error in the challenge, the last key/value pair in the array should not have a trailing comma since no other items are proceeding it.

Edit: While browsing php.net, I found an example they use where the final key/value pair has a trailing comma. Omitting this comma still works, and in other languages this trailing comma will be an error.
