Parse Error

Recommended Posts

I'm just starting out php so this may just be a simple fix of something dumb. I am following a workbook and it told me to create a file called moviesite.php and enter this code:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>My Movie Site</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<?php
define (“FAVMOVIE”, “The Life of Brian”);
echo “My favorite movie is “;
echo FAVMOVIE;
?>
</BODY>
</HTML>

It didn't work when I typed it in manually, so I copied and pasted it straight from the manual but when I try to open it up in my browser I get this response "Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\moviesite.php on line 7". Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
