Hi Keith,

Try this:

<?php
echo 'Today is ';
//Place your code below this comment
echo date('F d, Y');
?>

Seems to be working ok from my side.

Harry,

That is correct. I thought I needed the backslash but I do not.

Try putting that code below the commented line, like this:

<?php
//Place your code below this comment
echo 'Today is '; 
echo date('F d\,&\nb\sp Y');
?>

Yeah I tried that and it's not working. I bet it is something really simple.
