    You are probably getting a blank screen if you don't have "error reporting" enabled.
    If you enable error reporting, it will tell you that you're missing something near >

    You are missing the closing ?>

    <?php print ("hello world");?>

    This Hello World script is the same thing as yours only expanded a bit so it's easier to see.

    echo "Hello World";

    If you do all of your script editing using Notepad++, you'll discover that is highlights your code with colors, making it easy to see simple syntax errors.
