[FX.php List] Problem with site on client's server

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the info; I did find the setting for short tags in PHP,  
but since I always use <?php (except for the one I accidentally  
truncated), it's never been an issue.

I'll be sure, from now on, to be a little more careful about  
declaring variables; the one that got me was a counter variable that  
I didn't declare until further down the page, and its first mention  
was causing one of the errors.
