Wow, thanks for the quick feedback. And sorry. I looked hard but did not find these 
features. I stand corrected.

Heredoc is supported, see the manual on strings.

You need three <<< , in stead of 2, and it works.
And output buffering is supported all the way since PHP 4, AFAIK...

For a long time I've wished that PHP supported the "here" string syntax, i.e in Perl:

print <<EOF;
<font face="Arial" size="2">This is 
great for outputting HTML</font>

or better yet...

$string = <<EOS;
Hi, this is
a multi-line

The second example is a must considering that PHP does not support output buffering, 
which is another feature that I believe is essential. It would be lovely to flush an 
output buffer and then issue an HTTP header like a cookie or a redirect. Let me just 
say that I love PHP, but this is one aspect in which it falls short of (forgive me) 
Active Server Pages.
