    including PHP in .html pages

    OK, I've been trying to find out how you do this ever since I started coding, so what I want to find out is, there are services out there, for example tag-board, counters and stuff that you can sign up for and then you include this script in your page and where you placed this script is where the tag-board/counter etc will come up.

    the script usually starts with
    <script ...></script>

    how do they do this when obviously people can include this in their NON php/asp etc pages and it will show up.

    <script src="http://www.domain.com/counter.php"></script>

    makes the page load counter.php which is parsed as a PHP file , normally no output is expected expected/generated though your script can output valid javascript.

    same goes for <img src="http://www.domain.com/counter.php" /> , again counter.php can do its stuff and output a 1px*1px image so as not to break anything.

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)
