PHP is a server-side, cross-platform, HTML embedded scripting language that lets you create dynamic web pages. PHP-enabled web pages are treated the same as regular HTML pages. You can create and edit them the way you normally create regular HTML pages.

PHP-enabled files are simple HTML files ending in .PHP (the default extension). The .PHP files you create and include in your web directory are parsed by CSWS_PHP in the Secure Web Server. You do not need to compile the files.

For example, the following simple program called hello.php creates a static page, which means its display always remains the same. Note that PHP tags begin with.

	<html><head><title>PHP Test</title></head>
<?php echo "Hello World<p>"; ?>

The "Hello, World" example does not require you to use PHP. However, to display a greeting in French or Spanish, you could allow the user to choose either "Bonjour, World" or "Hola, World."

If you replace the third line in the previous example with the following line, the user can decide how to greet the world:

	<?php print $greeting, ", "; ?> World

In this example, $greeting is assigned a value that is sent to the browser.
