I'm going through a book for the second time and I got the following error message for the following script.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
      "http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml: lang="en" lang = "en">
<head>
      Today&rsquo;s Date</title>
      <meta http-equiv = "content-type"
            content = "text/html; charset=utf-8" />
</head>
<body>
      <p>Today&rsquo;s date (according to this web server is
      <?php
            echo date('l, F dS Y.');
      ?>
</body>
</html>

FWIW last time I did this I used an actual server on a site and I'm assuming it could have been set not to display errors.

That error means that you have not set the date/time zone in your php.ini file. Look for the [Date] label. This is mine

[Date]
; Defines the default timezone used by the date functions
; http://php.net/date.timezone
date.timezone = Europe/London
