Can I Use PHP with Javascript in my HTML scripts?


Hello,

I am new to PHP, but I know this sounds like a dumb question - but I wanted to know if you can use PHP and Javascript in the same HTML script file, as well as CSS, if you keep the languages separated by the tags ?

Second Question,

If I could run PHP and Javascript together - what would be executed first my Javascript or the PHP, because I know that Javascript will execute in the before or in the tags where the function is called, but what about PHP enclosed in tags , is it executed after or before Javascript?

I could explain further what I want to do with the two languages. I want to use PHP to handle things like mySQL queries or record data in the database, and I want Javascript to handle events like when a mouse is moved over a image to trigger other images to come up in framed window system.

Can this be done?

Thanks

    Yes, possible.

    Keep in mind that PHP is server-side scripting, and javascript is client-side scripting. PHP is executed when the page is rendered, and when it is loaded into the browser, the javascript is run.
