PHP: Using PHP in HTML

Using PHP in HTML:

We will learn about using PHP in HTML in this lesson. Creating dynamic web pages typically requires the use of PHP. As a result, Dynamic web pages provide each website user a unique page that may vary from another’s. This differs from static web pages, which serve the same content to every visitor.

PHP works closely with HTML to create dynamic behavior. Therefore, a document written in HTML can have PHP code added straight into it. When the site is delivered from the backend to the frontend, the PHP content is combined and executed with the HTML to make a single HTML document. The start and end of in-line PHP are represented by <?php and ?> , respectively.

For example, have a look at this piece of code:

<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. Additionally, a semicolon (;) is required at the conclusion of a PHP statement.

The above code outputs text into an HTML file. As a result, 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>
