u'll get actual the _contents_ of the file, not the 'html content'. so
even if it's a .php, u'll get it's source...it wouldn't be parsed by
the webserver. it'd be like "cat /usr/local/something.php" (as long as
the web server running ur script has read access to the file).

if it's not a local file, the target web server will parse it and then
u'd get the html content, if any.

u may want to check out
