IE problem with -> syntax - PHP Development

Hello, My environment is win2k, apache2, php 4 something. My browser is IE. My example is this. $a = new LinkName(); $b = $a->authenticate($userid,$userpassword); Every thing after the -> is displayed as text on the resulting page. Including the ?> close tag. Then it appears to work after that. Any suggestions as to why? Do I have to use a different php tag like <script language="php"> or something? My other question is, Do all php pages have to have html tags for IE to display the pages? Seems that without them, IE wants to download or open a file.. Thank ...

    Default IE problem with -> syntax

    Hello,

    My environment is win2k, apache2, php 4 something. My browser is IE.

    My example is this.
    $a = new LinkName();
    $b = $a->authenticate($userid,$userpassword);

    Every thing after the -> is displayed as text on the resulting page.
    Including the ?> close tag. Then it appears to work after that. Any
    suggestions as to why?

    Do I have to use a different php tag like <script language="php"> or
    something?

    My other question is,

    Do all php pages have to have html tags for IE to display the pages?
    Seems that without them, IE wants to download or open a file..

    Thank you, any help would be appreciated.

    It's not only IE. Using Mozilla, php pages are displayed as text,
    (just like notepad) and not processed. Yet IE will show the regular
    page.

    Using very simple pages to test.

    Like these from the tutorial

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>PHP Test</title>
    </head>
    <body>

    <?php
    if (strstr($_SERVER["HTTP_USER_AGENT"], "MSIE")) {
    ?>
    <h3>strstr must have returned true</h3>
    <center><b>You are using Internet Explorer</b></center>
    <?php
    } else {
    ?>
    <h3>strstr must have returned false</h3>
    <center><b>You are not using Internet Explorer</b></center>
    <?php
    }
    ?>
    <form action="action.php" method="POST">
    Your name: <input type="text" name="name" />
    Your age: <input type="text" name="age" />
    <input type="submit">
    </form>


    </body>
    </html>
