HTML In PHP

    I have the following code that is inserted into a Wordpress theme file.

    As you can imagine, it's not outputting correctly. I am no coder so I need some help with this. The following code should (hopefully) determine the country a visitor is from and display the appropriate banner to them.

    <?php
    $country = wp_ozh_getCountryName(0) ;
    switch ($country) {
       case "Canada" :
    <a target="_blank" href="http://www.affiliate.com/fs-bin/click?id=referrer_ID"><IMG alt="Canadian Banner" border="0" src="http://images.affiliate.com/outsidebanners/Homepage-120X600.gif"></a><IMG border="0" width="1" height="1" src="http://ad.affiliate.com/fs-bin/show?id=referrer_ID">;
            break;
       default :
    <a target="_blank" href="http://www.affiliate.com/fs-bin/click?id=referrer_ID"><IMG alt="American Banner" border="0" src="http://images.affiliate.com/outsidebanners/Homepage-120X600.gif"></a><IMG border="0" width="1" height="1" src="http://ad.affiliate.com/fs-bin/show?id=referrer_ID">;
    }
    ?>
    PHP:
    The code that determines the country is working fine when I substitute the html banner links with the echo command. I just need someone to tell me how to include the html code with the correct syntax inside the php tags.

    Thanks!

    try this

    
    <?php
    $country = wp_ozh_getCountryName(0) ;
    switch ($country) {
       case "Canada" :
    Print "<a target=\"_blank\" href=\"http://www.affiliate.com/fs-bin/click?id=referrer_ID\"><IMG alt=\"Canadian Banner\" border=\"0\" src=\"http://images.affiliate.com/outsidebanners/Homepage-120X600.gif\"></a><IMG border=\"0\" width=\"1\" height=\"1\" src=\"http://ad.affiliate.com/fs-bin/show?id=referrer_ID\">";
            break;
       default :
    Print "<a target=\"_blank\" href=\"http://www.affiliate.com/fs-bin/click?id=referrer_ID\"><IMG alt=\"American Banner\" border=\"0\" src=\"http://images.affiliate.com/outsidebanners/Homepage-120X600.gif\"></a><IMG border=\"0\" width=\"1\" height=\"1\" src=\"http://ad.affiliate.com/fs-bin/show?id=referrer_ID\">";
    }
    ?>
    
    PHP:
    That should work...

    Yeah. You have to use print or echo to output the HTML strings.

    What jmhyer posted should work.

    Definitely do it the way kishore415 said. When I was first learning PHP I used echo and print to insert HTML code and now I run into a lot of problems with trying to debug and work with all that old code.
