I am trying to write a macro & having some difficulty.  

I wrote a tiny little macro & saved it as 

& have the following line in my httpd.conf: 
ScriptAlias /testwiki "/var/local/lib/testwiki/moin.cgi"

here's the macro:  

#format python

def execute(macro, args):
    return '<p> this is a test! </>'

that's it.  I imagine t hat should work, right?  but I try embedding
i it & instead of executing, the page simply displays :
[[TestMacro.py]] with the TestMacro linked as a WikiName.  
here's a link to the output:  
so what'sw rong with this?  Do I have the syntax wrong?  

All help appreciated, thanks,
