The problem here is you have a string to output with lots of double quotes 
embedded in it, and you have also tried to quote it with double quotes. There 
are several things you could do:

(i) Insert a backslash in front of every double quote; I don't recommend this, 
as you're bound to miss one and it's very ugly to read.

(ii) Enclose it in single quotes instead; this is good as it prevents nearly 
all interpolation/escaping, but it has the disadvantage that you then have to 
backslash any single quotes.

(iii) Use a Heredoc http://php.net/heredoc; this avoids the need to backslash 
internal double quotes, but might be a problem if your text ever contains $ 
signs as it does variable interpolation.

(iv) If you are on PHP 5.3, use a Nowdoc http://php.net/nowdoc.

Whatever option you choose, you will always have to backslash-escape any 
backslashes; on a quick scan, I can't see any in that text block, but it's best 
to be aware ;)
