Check for SSL

This is not working - can't figure out why.
If I try to change the header, I get an error.
If I try to echo the server variables, I get an error.

if($_SERVER["HTTPS"] != "on" || $_SERVER["SERVER_PORT"] != "443") {
    <script type="text/javascript">

and I tried this - no alert!

<script type="text/javascript">
var sValue = <?php $_SERVER["HTTPS"] ?>;

It's out on 123ehost, so I can't set or control a lot of things.

Don't think that will work here, but
$port = $_SERVER["SERVER_PORT"];    
if($port != "443") {
    <script type="text/javascript">
did work.  It wasn't setting https at all.
