<script> tag in php file confuses inspection

I have a very simple .php file that just runs phpinfo().  The php bit is nested inside an XHTML structure though (see below).  When I run the file, it works fine.

However, I'm also using a <script> tag and for some reason it confuses the code inspector, which is picking up all sorts of spurious errors.  If I remove the <script> line, the code inspector is happy again.

Any ideas why?

      <script src="./style/functions.js" /></script>
   <?php phpinfo(); ?>

Hi there,

I have no clue at all of what do you see there on your screen. Therefore: please, spare few seconds of your precious time and share a screenshot for that code (using vanilla Default or Darcula color scheme).

Thank you.

You have an error in your code: you have closed script tag twice: first time by using /> and second time by using </script>.

<script src="./style/functions.js" /></script>

If you remove "/" from "/>" (or whole "</script>") it will work OK.
