Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'meta' (T_STRING)

I was following a tutorial and typed exactly what was written, giving me an parse error.
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'meta' (T_STRING)
The offending line is:
<?php the_tags( '<span class="tag-links"><span class="entry-utility-prep entry-utility-prep-tag-links">' . __('Tagged ', 'Pretty' ) . '</span>', ", ", "</span><span class="meta-sep">|</span>" ) ?>
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Maybe it should be this (please check your single and double quotes)?

Code: Select all

<?php the_tags( '<span class="tag-links"><span class="entry-utility-prep entry-utility-prep-tag-links">' . __('Tagged ', 'Pretty' ) . '</span>', '', '</span><span class="meta-sep">|</span>' ) ?>

Thank you so much. The tutorial I was copying from had double quotes, so naturally I did the same.

Thanks for your help!
