PHP syntax

I am having a syntax issue that I cannot figure out. Here is the code being executed:
	<?= $this->Html->link(
			$this->Html->url('/img/blog_widget/img.png' . " " . __("This is my html", true)),
				'alt' => __("alt text here", true),
				'target' => '_blank'
		array('escape' => false)

Open in new window

Here is the output. As you can see, the img tag is not closing and the HTML that is supposed to be echoed is included in the img reference.

<a href="http://www.google.com"><img src="/img/blog_widget/img.png This is my html" alt="alt text here" target="_blank" /></a>

Any idea why this is happening?

It looks like an error in the code that generates the HTML  Can you please post that code?

Or maybe just change line 3 to this:

$this->Html->url('/img/blog_widget/img.png' . ">" . __("This is my html", true)),

Thanks - that spits out &gt; instead of the closing bracket.

It's cake 1.2. I will try to find a link.

Don't really know cake, but it looks like a concatenation problem. shouldn't it be like this, i.e create the image and then concatenate 'This is my HTML'

     		array('alt' => __("alt text here", true), 'target' => '_blank')
		) . __("This is my html", true),

     array('escape' => false)
