If I start my php scripts with
--------------
<?
--------------
the browser shows the contents of php file and the web server doesn't execute the script.

But if I start them with
--------------
<?php
--------------
everything works perfectly and I receive the expected results.

the site is running on a Windows Server 2003 with IIS6.0 and php5.2.3
I believe there should be something wrong with settings of IIS6 or php.ini

any kind of advice is much appreciated.
