Why isn't this working?

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>

<script type="text/javascript">
function moo() {
      alert("mooooo");
}

</body>

<p <?php echo "onclick=moo()" ?>>ljlkjljljkjlkj</p>

</html>

you put your p tag outside body and there's no closing script tag

corrected :
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>

<script type="text/javascript">
function moo() {
     alert("mooooo");
}
</script>
<p <?php echo "onclick='moo()'" ?>>ljlkjljljkjlkj</p>
</body>



</html>

There may be some assumptions about the interrelationship of PHP and the client browser.  PHP runs before the client ever gets control.  But there is also this:
<p <?php echo "onclick=moo()" ?>>ljlkjljljkjlkj</p>

Open in new window

Have you looked at the HTML with the W3C validator?  Is the opening paragraph tag correctly coded with the closing wicket?  Is there some advantage to using PHP here?  I cannot see it but maybe you can help us understand why you are doing it this way.
