Hi export, I just start to use php and has a web variable question:

I have this php file:
<html>
<head>
 <title>
   PHP take ssn input
 </title>
</head>
<body>
<pre>
  <?php
    echo "<h1> hello $ssn !</h1>"; ?>
</pre>
</body>
</html>


and I run this URL:
   http://194.128.100.100/e5_1.php?ssn=123454


What I get is:

hello !.

The $ssn value doesn't display.

Can you help me out here?

Thanks a lot.

I always find it better if you seperate the html from the php...not that it makes it work any different :)  I would suggest this....

<? $ssn = $_POST['ssn']; ?>

<h1> hello <? $ssn; ?></h1>


but again that's just a suggestion

Cheers
