Shall I disable short tags?

Hi

I am just starting with PHP. I am reading a PHP 5 book and they say to
not use short tags and to actually disable them so I see an error
message if I don't form my tags correctly.
"short_open_tag" is currently set to "on", shall I set it to "off"?
I am not planning on using short tags.

Thanks a lot

Patrick

If you are not planing to use them you can disable them.

Bye!

Short tags can conflict with XML. It's always a good coding practice to
try to follow a standard, like the PEAR (pear.php.net) coding standards.

You can find some explanation on the following page:
