PHP: Using PHP in HTML

Using PHP in HTML:

PHP is a programming language that is frequently used to create dynamic web pages. We will learn about using PHP in HTML in this lesson. A dynamic web page is one in which each visitor to the site is given a distinct page that may differ from how the site appears to other users. This differs from static web pages, which serve the same content to every visitor.

PHP was created to work in tandem with HTML in order to achieve this dynamic behavior. PHP can be used right in the middle of an HTML document. The PHP content is performed and added to the HTML to generate one HTML document when the website is delivered from the backend to the frontend. The start and end of in-line PHP are represented by <?php and ?> , respectively.

Consider the following code as an example:

<p>This HTML will be delivered in its current state.</p>
<?php echo "<p>However, PHP interprets this code and converts it to HTML.</p>";?>

The echo keyword in PHP is used to output text. Everything between the double quotations (") is the text in this case. A statement is a piece of PHP code that contains instructions. In PHP, a semicolon (;) must be used at the end of each statement.

As a result, when the code above is run, the text is output into an HTML file, and the front-end receives the following HTML document:

<p>This HTML will be delivered in its current state.</p>
<p>However, PHP interprets this code and converts it to HTML.</p>
