Nothing to do with the code you've posted. You've only posted HTML. This is php error.

Usually means that you've left something out (; or })?

what is different between name, class, and id? if i just use id will it make difference?

More to it than this, but in short:
id can be used for js and css hooks, class likewise
name is used for identifying the form field when sent to server

This type of info will be available in most beginner's HTML tutorials. Have a Google. I don't usually direct people to W3Schools, but:
