I'm trying to code a Wordpress theme, and I'm getting this error message -

"Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/xxxxxx/public_html/wp-content/themes/xxxxxxx/index.php on line 27"

The thing is, I can't figure out what's wrong :/ Here's the code -

1<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" 2"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
3<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

20 <link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Atom 0.3" 21href="<?php bloginfo('atom_url'); ?>" />
22 <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />
24 <?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly&format=link'); ?>
25 <?php //comments_popup_script(); // off by default ?>
26 <?php wp_head(); ?>

<div id="header">
<a href="<?php bloginfo('url');?>"><?php bloginfo('name');?></a>
<?php bloginfo(’description’);?>

Line 27 seems to be "</head>", but I can't see anything wrong with that... O_o Any suggestions?

I think it is on this one:

<a href="<?php bloginfo('url');?>"><?php bloginfo('name');?></a>
<?php bloginfo(’description’);?>

try to put echo on those you want to display inside the PHP tags.

Thanks, but I just get a similar error relating to the echo :/
