PHP Basic Query
I am new person to PHP. Just using XAMPP V3.2.1. I have created two small scripts.
print "<h2>php program to add two numbers...</h2><br />";
$val1 = 20;
$val2 = 20;
$sum = $val2 + $val2; /* Assignment operator */
echo "Result(SUM): $sum";
echo "Hello World!";
The second script is showing a blank page in browser while 1st script is showing correct result. Any idea what could be the reason? Both look almost same.

use PHP tags and you may see some errors highlighted. use a proper editor to edit, it will help you.
what are the names of the script? remember files need to end with .php!

kavin_brown already solved the problem: There was a typo in the closing title, which caused all content to appear in the title rather than on the page.
But using an editor or even an IDE is certainly a good idea, especially if you have trouble with splelnig.
