	Found it; thanks.   It's been god-knows how many yrs ago that i
	used the short tags option .... it may have been the Last time
	my counter broke.  Lost in the myst of times.  Anyway, i've
	decided to leave the short form off as is advised in the ini

	I'M trying to decide whether to tatoo this on my forehead or
	just make a note in my ~/.notes file for the next time this
	breaks.  if/when.  Meanwhile, the best thingt to do would simply
	write a script to turn <? into <?php ....   Never know when I'll
	get into things like <?xml or whatever.
