Some spaces

Right now, the three <td> elements have information about the original movie as static pieces of text. Replace each of those with PHP commands that INSTEAD display information about the new movie from the array instead. (Be sure to leave the <td> tags intact.)

Bummer! It looks like the ranking is displayed in the browser, but the HTML around it does not seem to be correct. Please double-check the spacing and other formatting.

I don't really understand the probleme of the spacing

movie.php
<?php  $movie=array();?>
<?php $movie["title"]="The Empire Strikes Back";
$movie["year"]="1980";
$movie["director"]="Irvin Kershner";
$movie["imdb_rating"]=8.8;
$movie["imdb_ranking"]=11;
?>
<h1><?php echo $movie["title"];?> (<?php echo $movie["year"];?>)</h1>
<table>
<tr>
<th>Director</th>
<td>
<?php echo $movie["director"];?></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th>IMDB Rating</th>
<td><?php echo $movie["imdb_rating"];?></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th>IMDB Ranking</th>
<td><?php echo $movie["imdb_ranking"];?>;</td>
</tr>
</table>

Looks like just a typo! The line:

<td><?php echo $movie["imdb_ranking"];?>;</td>

has an extra semi-colon in it. Change it to the following:

<td><?php echo $movie["imdb_ranking"];?></td>

Basically, the challenge engine is expecting to find this html:

<td>11</td>

but it sees this:

<td>11;</td>

<?php $movie = array( "title" => "The Empire Strikes Back","year"=>1980 ); ?> <?php

$movie["title"] = "The Empire Strikes Back"; $movie["year"] = 1980; $movie["director"] = "Irvin Kershner"; $movie["imdb_rating"] = 8.8; $movie["imdb_ranking"] = 11;

?>

<h1><?php echo $movie["title"]; ?> (<?php echo $movie["year"]; ?>)</h1>

<table> <tr> <th>Director</th> <td><?php echo $movie['director'] ?></td> </tr> <tr> <th>IMDB Rating</th> <td><?php echo $movie['imdb_rating'] ?></td> </tr> <tr> <th>IMDB Ranking</th> <td><?php echo $movie['imdb_ranking'] ?></td> </tr> </table>
