php in cell

i am wandering why this script doesn't work. i tested the php script on a different page were it wasn't inserted into a table cell.

the $joketext comes from a different page using a hyperlink that takes this value.

is there something special when i want to use it in a table?

thank you in advance:

<?php
echo($joketext);
?>

    : i am wandering why this script doesn't work.
    did you save it as a .HTML or a .PHP file?

    and you could try this:

    <?php
    if( isset( $joketext ) )
    echo $joketext;
    else
    echo "No joketext";
    ?>

    this should always render _something_ so if it doesn't you know the
    PHP code doesn't run.

    The file is saved as .php so this should be fine. i inserted the text you gave to me but there is still nothing in the cell. Maybe there is a problem to insert something into a table cell? when i have the code without the table it is working? maybe i need to rewrite a table cell in php??? this is my first project and i am very lost. i was so excited when i could do this on a plain page and i thought that php can't be that complicated. but i guess it can... thank you for your help.

    yes, there can be - depending on your browser, the "rendering" of active elements inside a table cell can be very problematic.
    a solution would be to also use php to 'draw' the table; like

    echo '';

    etc etc
