Trouble with Converting Strings to Numbers

Hi

I'm trying to get the following code to work.  Could someone let me know what I am doing wrong.

<!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”>
<body>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
//
//
var mySting = "56.02 degrees centigrade";
var myInt;
var myFloat;

document.write("<br>"+mySting +"is" + parseInt(myString) + "as an integer   ");
myInt=paraseInt(myString);

document.write("<br>"+myString+ "when converted to an integer equals  "+myInt);
myFloat=parseFloat(myString);

document.write(myString "<br"> + "When convertedto a floating point number equals"+myFloat);

</script>
</body>
</html>

Thanks.

Greg
