im using a php mailing list script, and I want to make it look like the rest of my site, which makes use of tables. below is a sample of code i have added:

echo "<table border=1 bgcolor="#FEDEB8" cellpadding=5 cellspacing=3 width=80% align=center valign=top height="240">";
echo "<tr>";

however it generates an error on the echo "<tr>";

and its not because of the <tr>, as i had two other lines above the code i pasted here and it coughed on <center>

what am I doing wrong? I know very little about php

thanks for any help

oh.. the error message i get is:

Parse error: parse error, expecting `','' or `';'' in /webdir/username/worldwide/phpscript/themailer/path/rgnmailer.php on line 80

in this case, echo "<tr>"; being the the 80th line...

echo "<tr>";

Yes, you are, however,
Code:
echo "<tr>";
shouldn't produce an error.

Could you please give us a URL? And did you look @ the source of the "blank page"?

echo "<table border=1 bgcolor=\"#FEDEB8\" cellpadding=5 cellspacing=3 width=80% align=center valign=top height=\"240\">";
echo "<tr>";
echo "<td colspan=2 bgcolor=\"#FFFE7\"> <FONT FACE=\"MS Sans Serif, arial,helvetica\" size=1 COLOR=\"navy\">";
echo " <b>Kaye\'s Recipe\'s: Welcome</b></font></td>";
echo "</tr>";
echo "<tr>";
echo "<td height=\"278\">";
echo "<p>";
echo "<center>";





echo "</center>";
echo "<br>";
echo "<p>&nbsp; </p>";
echo "<p><font face=\"verdana,arial,helvetica\" size=\"1\"><b> </b></font>";
echo " </td>";
echo "</tr>";
echo "</table>";

echo "</center>";

This is what's wrong:

Code:
Kaye\'s Recipe\'s


You shouldn't escape the ' when you're using " for your variables.

Also, your HTML isn't really valid, but that doesn't matter.

------------------------------------------------
<?
//Initialize database settings.

$link = mysql_connect("db.terkuhl.f2s.com:3306", "terkuhl", "*******");
$dbname = "terkuhl";
$tablename = "members";
//Initialize each table cloumn.

$query = "SELECT * from $tablename ORDER BY Sort";

$result = mysql_db_query ($dbname, $query, $link);

//create a table
print ("<table border=0 width=\"100%\" cellspacing=1 cellpadding=1 align=center>\n");
print ("<tr align=center>\n");
print ("<td align=center><b><u><h2>Rank</b></u></h2></td>\n");
print ("<td align=center><b><u><h2>Name</b></u></h2></td>\n");
print ("<td align=center><b><u><h2>Account</b></u></h2></td>\n");
print ("<td align=center><b><u><h2>Class</b></u></h2></td>\n");
print ("<td align=center><b><u><h2>Level</u>*</b></h2></td>\n");
print ("<td align=center><b><u><h2>XP</b></u></h2></td>\n");
print ("<td align=center><b><u><h2>E-Mail</b></u></h2></td>\n");
print ("</tr>\n");


while ($row = mysql_fetch_array ($result)) {
print ("<tr align=center valign=top>\n");
print ("<td align center valign=top>$row[Rank]</td>\n");
print ("<td align center valign=top>$row[Char_Name]</td>\n");
print ("<td align center valign=top>$row[Accnt_Name]</td>\n");
print ("<td align center valign=top>$row[Char_Type]</td>\n");
print ("<td align center valign=top>$row[Level]</td>\n");
print ("<td align center valign=top>$row[xp]</td>\n");
print ("<td align center valign=top><a href=mailto:$row[Email]>$row[Email]</a></td>\n");
