Default !resolved! - a change in coding style

I know i can change
(HTML inside echo statements)
echo "What grade did $Name get in Math?";
(PHP inside HTML)
What grade did <?php $Name ?> get in Math?
and it will work.

But how do i change
echo "<input type=hidden name=Student[] value='$Name'>";
to something similar?

I've tried using
<input type="hidden" name="<?php $Student[] ?>" value="<?php $Name ?>">
<input type="hidden" name="Student[]" value="<?php $Name ?>">
but neither will work.
What this code is supposed to do is create an array called $Student which i need to call on in the next page which processes the form.

Can anyone help or must i use HTML inside an echo statement for this to work?
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

through the age old miracle method of tinkering, i figured it out.

the problem of the $Name value not getting passed on, was due to the fact that the value wasn't stated in the form.
i resolved that issue by changing <?php $Name ?> to <?php echo $Name ?> and thereby actually using the value in the form.

in other words, a sloppy mistake on my side.
