    Ok here is my really dumb question.

    How do you get this to work:

    <a href="<?echo "$URL";?>">Click here</a><br>

    becuase for me PHP processes to this:

    <a href="">Click here</a><br>

    I persume it is becuase I am improperly nesting quotation(") within quotation(")

    This seems like it must be vry simple and I'm over looking something. I have tried it many differnt ways and I can seem to get it to work.

    Any info would be greate.

    If you NEEDED quotes around $URL you could use single quotes or escape the double quotes with

    however, you don't need quotes around $URL in this instance. Just drop them.
