In the following code I'M getting a strange output. The browser is displaying a textarea and the actual html code the for the form is inside the text area, it's strange and I can't find the problem.

[code]<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<?php

if($inputString == NULL)
{
print <<<HERE

<form>



HERE;
}

else
{
//there is a value, so we'll deal with it
// break phrase into array
$words = split(" ", $inputString);

foreach($words as $theWord)
{
$theWord = rtrim($theWord);
$firstLetter = subsr($theWorld, 0, 1);
$restOfWord = substr($theWord, 1, strlen($theWord));
//print "$firstLetter) $restOfWord

";
if(strstr("aeiouAEIOU", $firstLetter))
{
//it's a vowel
$newWord = $theWord . "Way";
}

else
{
//it's a consonant
$newWord = $restOfWord . $firstLetter . "ay";
} // end if

$newPhrase = $newPhrase . $newWord . " ";
} // end foreach

print $newPhrase;

} // end if

?>

    i dont know if it is the same with HEREDOCs but with strings in php if you want to use a a quotation inside a string you have to escape it so:
    [code]
    print <<<HERE
    <form>



    HERE;
    [/code]

    [code]$firstLetter = subsr($theWorld, 0, 1);[/code]
    not subsr, it is [b]substr[/b]

    And use $_POST for validation.

    if($inputString == NULL) to if(!$_POST) or if(!$_POST['input_name'])
