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.

Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
