Don't do that then!

Seriously, don't use php inside a tag, but replace the whole tag:

<?php echo '<a href="http://digitalhit.master.com/texis/master/search/'
        . 'mysite.html?q=$celebsearch">'; ?>

Of course this needs the end tag, and possibly the contents of the
element, to also be generated by php, or tidy will complain about
mismatched tags.


hope this helps,
