<h1>Font Choices</h1>
<h3>Demonstrates how to read HTML form elements</h3>
<form method = "post"

<h3>Text to modify</h3>
<textarea name = "basicText"
rows = "10"
cols = "40">
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this
continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the
proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a
great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so
conceived and so dedicated can long endure.
</textarea>
<table border = 2>
<tr>
<td><h3>Border style</h3></td>
<td colspan = 2><h3>Border Size</h3></td>
</tr>
<tr>

And this code of PHP page:

border-style:$borderStyle;
border-color:green"
HERE;
print "<div style = $theStyle>";
print '$basicText';
print "</span>";

?>
</div>
</center>
</body>
</html>

Answer
print "<div style = {$theStyle}>";
print  $basicText; 
print "</span>";

or

print "<div style = ".$theStyle.">";
print  "$basicText"; 
print "</span>";
