Easy question about including a php variable inside an href?

this doesn’t seem to be working… what am I missing?

<link rel=StyleSheet Href="<?php $siteroot ?>/whatisdamon.css" type="text/css" media=screen>
<link rel=StyleSheet Href="<?php echo $siteroot; ?>/whatisdamon.css" type="text/css" media=screen>

You need to echo it.

that was record speed. holy crap i did not deserve that kind of service. it was a terrible question so i feel kinda embarassed and will show myself out. but not before mentioning that babylon5 is the best! (your side, their side and the truth!)
