Like html starting and ending tags we should write php opening and closing tags for each php script which we embed in a html page.
Html opening and closing tags will be written as
php opening tag can be written in different types of forms, they are
<?php ?> , <? ?> , <script language=”php”> </script> or <% %>
Example of a html page
<h1> This is a sample html page </h1>
Example of php page
Echo ‘This is sample php page’;
You can use any text editor to write the code of html of php. We have to save the file as .htm or .html if it is a pure html page and .php if it is a php embedded html page.
To run the html page we need just a browser software which doesn’t need any special software in a windows xp computer but to run the .php file we should have php engine installed and configured on a local computer.
Ask me any further doubts on this lesson.
