First a message to the ones that have responded before me:
You're correct about the nested php tags that are not doing what the
OP wanted, but you might want to take a closer look at the error
that's in the logs. In ANY CASE PHP SHOULD NOT CRASH. What if the OP
really wanted to print PHP tags inside it's textbox? That's perfectly
valid. I tested the code, and it works fine on my machine, even though
I get PHP tags inside the output.

What version of Operating System, Webserver(Apache?) and PHP are you
using? It seems like there is a bug in your PHP, so if you're not yet
at the latest version, you might want to upgrade your Webserver/PHP.
