RE: junk from my forms output

What are you writing your php files with? It looks like you're using a word processor or Front Page, and saving as RTF or whatever nasty format FP uses.

You have to save as a raw ASCII text file.

Subject:  junk from my forms output

I have the following in a file called "hello.php" in my htdocs directory (Apache webroot).

<form action="action.php" method="post">  <p>Your name: <input type="text" name="name" /></p>  <p>Your age: <input type="text" name="age" /></p>  <p><input type="submit" /></p> </form>

as well as the following in a file "action.php", also in the same directory.

Hi <?php echo htmlspecialchars($_POST['name']); ?>.
You are <?php echo (int)$_POST['age']; ?> years old.

When I click on the submit button of the form in hello.php, it should say something like:
"Hi Hanson.  You are 33 years old."  But instead of just saying that it also appends a bunch of junk at the beginning like this:

Arial;}} {\*\generator Msftedit;}\viewkind4\uc1\pard\f0\fs20 Hi hanson .\par You are 33 years old.\par }  

Can someone help me with this?  Why does my forms reply from action.php contain so much junk?  I have a Windows installation of PHP and Apache.
