Simple test of PHP in staticpages fails - why?

From what I read in the FAQ and forums, I should be able to include PHP in the HTML of a staticpage but this simple page test fails:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /home/myportal_systemfiles/plugins/staticpages/functions.inc(841) : eval()'d code on line 1

This is my staticpage content:
Text Formatted Code

<h1>This is a test of using php in a staticpage</h1>
<?php echo '<br>This text is from pho'; ?>
<hr>
 

I have the page option: execute php set.

Can anyone help?

If you enable PHP, the content of the static page is expected to be PHP code. <h1> is not PHP code ...

Solution:
Text Formatted Code
?><h1>This is a test of using php in a staticpage</h1>
<?php echo '<br>This text is from pho'; ?>
<hr>

Also see the documentation.

bye, Dirk

Thanks - I must have missed the part of the explanation that said you need to have a closing PHP tag at the top of the page content.

Works now - thanks again!
