Hi I am a newbie to PHP so please help

How do I add information into my mysql db?
I have a db called sitedb and I want to insert datat into my news table
inside my sitedb.

code snippet:
<title>Untitled Document</title>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">



<form action="<?=$PHP_SELF;?>" method="post" name="news">

<p> NAME

<input name="author" type="text" id="author" maxlength="30">


<p> your news

<textarea cols="50" rows="10" name="body" type="text" id="body"
maxlength="60"> </textarea>



include ("broadcast.inc");


<p><input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit"></p>


// this inserts the data into the table news, and the rows within that table

mysql_query("INSERT INTO news (author, posted, body) VALUES($author,
$posted, $body) ");

// Close the connection
