Write and Run PHP with HTML

Pure HTML is static text files with dead content that want everything but to change. However by the help of a service scripting language such as PHP, HTML can be dynamic and changes every time you make a different request to the server.

PHP is born with HTML rendering in mind. So it’s plain easy to write PHP from inside HTML. Just use:

<?php //php code goes here ?>

For example, we have a variable named $url to be the URL address of a web document, let’s run and present it inside with HTML so that the client browser gets the actual value dynamically:

<a href="<?php echo $url; ?>">pricing table</a>

There you go. To run PHP around HTML, just enclose the code with <?php … ?>.
