PHP Escaping From HTML

PHPServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Definition and Usage

PHP file can have mixed content with code within tags embedded in a HTML document. Code outside tags is ignored by the parser, leaving it to be interpreted by client browser. A HTML document can have multiple blocks of PHP, each inside <?php and ?> tags.

Syntax

<p>
HTML block
</p>
<?php
//php block
..
..
?>
<p>
HTML block
</p>
<?php
//php block
..
..
?>
<p>
HTML block
</p>

Every time opening PHP tag is encountered, parser starts rendering the output to the client until closing tag is reached. If code consusts of conditional statement, th parser determines which block to be skipped.

Again till another opening tag comes, everything is treated as HTML leaving the browser to process the same.
