Whitespace between <?php and ?> tags is essentially irrelevant, as long as your code is syntactically correct. For example, the following 3 code snippets are equivalent: <?php include 'testing.inc' ?> <?php include 'testing.inc'; ?> <? include 'testing.inc' ; ?> <tip type="PHP language constructs"> Get to know the language constructs (include, require, print, echo, etc) in PHP. As well as behaving like functions, they also have extensive additional properties and behaviours that offer a great deal of flexibility. For example, instead of just calling: <? print( "This is a test" ); ?> You can do things like: <? $amazing = 'remarkably useful'; print <<<EOF There are some $amazing things that you can do with PHP language constructs, including the use of HEREDOC functionality within print statements. Just remember to have your terminator on a separate line followed by a semicolon, and to have no whitespace after the opening <<<. EOF; ?> </tip> Seb.
