I am trying to write a simple content management system for my schools website. I have all of the sql functions working, but when I combine my xhtml and put it with my php the style gets all messed up. I have tried taking it out of the head and linking it to a .css file, but I have had no luck.here is my code, any help would be appreciated.thanks<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN\" \"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd\"><html xmlns=\"http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml\"><head><meta http-equiv=\"Content-Type\" content=\"text/html; charset=iso-8859-1\" /><title>Events Query</title><style type="text/css">td {font-size:10px; }table {font-family: tahoma; color: #a8a8a8; }p {font-family: tahoma; color: #a8a8a8; }A {text-decoration: underline; color:d59a33; }body {scrollbar-3dlight-color:#a8a8a8; scrollbar-arrow-color:#ffffff; scrollbar-base-color:#FFFFFF; scrollbar-darkshadow-color:#FFFFFF; scrollbar-face-color:#ffd79c; scrollbar-highlight-color:#FFFFFF; scrollbar-shadow-color:#ffffff};</style></head><body leftmargin=\"25\"><h2>Events</h2> <table style="width:375px;"> <tr> <td style="text-align:right;"> <a href="betaevents.html">Events List</a> | <a href="calendar.html">Calendar</a> </td> </tr> </table> <? $db_name = "ifhs"; $table_name = "events"; $connection = @mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', 'password') or die(mysql_error()); $db = @mysql_select_db($db_name, $connection) or die(mysql_error()); $sql = "SELECT * FROM $table_name"; $result = @mysql_query($sql, $connection) or die(mysql_error()); while ($row = @mysql_fetch_array($result)) { $title = $row['title']; $place = $row['place']; $edate = $row['edate']; $notes = $row['notes']; $img = $row['img']; $events_list .= "<table style=\"border:thin; width:375px;\"> <tr> <td colspan=\"2\" style=\"background-color:f7f7f7;\"><h5>$title</h5></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan=\"2\"><font color=\"000000\"><b>Date: $edate at $time</b></font></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan=\"2\"><font color=\"000000\"><b>Place: $place</b></font></td> </tr> <tr> <td colspan=\"2\" style=\"height:1px; background-color:C0C0C0;\"></td> </tr> <tr> <td width=\"274\" height=\"100\" valign=\"top\"><br />    $notes </td> <td width=\"89\"><img src=\"$img\" alt=\"\" width=\"89\" height=\"90\" /></td> </tr> </table>"; } echo "$events_list"; ?></body></html>

Remove all "\" before the quotes. You only need them when you echo quotes, not in the whole PHP file. Example:

<a href="file.html"><?php echo "I'm really \"modest\"";?></a>

Notice there are no "\" in the href attribute, as it's not part of PHP.

I don't see this part being assigned to a variable:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC \"-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN\" \"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd\"><html xmlns=\"http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml\"><head><meta http-equiv=\"Content-Type\" content=\"text/html; charset=iso-8859-1\" /><title>Events Query</title><style type="text/css">td {font-size:10px; }table {font-family: tahoma; color: #a8a8a8; }p {font-family: tahoma; color: #a8a8a8; }A {text-decoration: underline; color:d59a33; }body {scrollbar-3dlight-color:#a8a8a8; scrollbar-arrow-color:#ffffff; scrollbar-base-color:#FFFFFF; scrollbar-darkshadow-color:#FFFFFF; scrollbar-face-color:#ffd79c; scrollbar-highlight-color:#FFFFFF; scrollbar-shadow-color:#ffffff};</style></head><body leftmargin=\"25\"><h2>Events</h2><table style="width:375px;"><tr><td style="text-align:right;"><a href="betaevents.html">Events List</a> | <a href="calendar.html">Calendar</a></td></tr></table>

The one after it- yes.
