I am looking for a php web development company anyone please contact me.

In the very first task there isnt really anything to do, but I tried uploaded the file to my server and noticed something strange, the html code made through php shows the ending part ;?> in the browser, ie:

<?php echo "

But this code is interpreted by PHP and turned into HTML



But this code is interpreted by PHP and turned into HTML


If I remove the ending part “;?>” it works as intended, but that code won’t run in the codepen learning environment.
Can anyone explain what’s going on?
