Default url as a variable

I have had no luck with this all day, someone please help. In the body of my php form I have:

<img src="$banner" />

but I do not get my image. I have also tried a few dozen other variations such as

<img src="<?echo $banner; ?>">

What am I doing wrong? I just want this to point and display a gif.

Thanks Om,
It was the clue I needed to get started. I am making a template for my my web pages. Each page will have a unique variable setting that will put the right images and such (like the banner on top) for each page. For the sake of anyone else that is getting started and trying to do this here is my variation of Om's code:
On index.php
<?php $banner = "index_files/headline.jpg"; ?>
<?php include "template.php"; ?>

Then in template.php

<?php echo "<img src=". $banner . ">"; ?>

I know it is simple but it helped me get started.
Thanks again Om!
