Remember, PHP is a "pre-processor". Nothing about PHP itself exists by the time Javascript is executed, only the things PHP generated before sending the page to the browser are known to Javascript.

To make what you have work, you need to surround that $id you have on the second line in PHP opening and closing delimiters like you have on the first line. On the second line however, you'll use echo/print/etc to tell PHP that it should print the string value of $id right there.

For instance;

Code: [ Select ]
<? $id = $myid['id']; ?>
<a href="javascript:handleParent("<? echo $id; ?>")">Comment</a>
  1. <? $id = $myid['id']; ?>
  2. <a href="javascript:handleParent("<? echo $id; ?>")">Comment</a>
