php error

I have this:
<?php
$skey = mt_rand(0,100000);
....
>?
....
<img src="captcha.php?skey=<? print $skey; >" />

Something is wrong with the statement:

<img src="captcha.php?skey=<? print $skey; >" />

I run it through a syntax checker & it says

PHP Syntax Check: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '>' in your code on line 403

I've looked at this till I'm going blind and I can see nothing wrong.

What is it?

What a TOTAL idiot I AM.

That's obvious.

This is what happens when you are trying to solve a much bigger problem.
