I am having a difficult time understanding exactly how php works. I know what html is and how to write html. I also know that php is a scripting language that is ideal for Web development (server-side). I get these basic concepts. Here are a couple of questions:

What is the difference between an html page and a php page?

Is there a basic structure for coding (ie: Java does a lot of encapsulation using classes)?

Chalk and Cheese...
HTML page are just rendered by the browsers html engine (client side)...
PHP pages are processed server side for content and the process produces html...

Now that's apart from the obvious differences... :|

Basic structure... not really...
php and javascript can both employ class as does css (called tag but actually classes)...

You don't have to use classes to achieve results, I write most code in functions and rarely bother with classes... (I old school) ;)

When a new member posts a link in their first post it's normally just spam, even if they appear to ask a valid question...

Your post is no different... but I'm a nice guy so... only changes to background possible are background image and the site doesn't need them....
