Attempting to regain php literacy. (and my first venture into HTML5) Can't even get my "Hello World" to work. Here's my code
<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta name="" content="">
<?php echo ("<p>Why is this happening?</p>"); ?>
What displays is
Why is this happening?
"); ?>
i.e. the statement excerpt following the </p>

I'm running under windows 8. Same result in chrome 29.0, Firefox 24.0, IE 10.0

Not a good omen.
