Your error is with the elseif, if you use elseif you need an argument:

elseif(codition)

Change it to:

else{

This way it's either the if or the else.

</font>

</head>
</html>

You need to specify elseif condition.

Specify that or I guess you just need to use ELSE. instead of Elseif.

You are escaping in/out of PHP mode bit too much and unnecessarily. I mean you just want to print one HTML and you are escaping to HTML for that.

See this code, it is much more organized and readable.
