The main file should set up the page (<head>, <body>, etc).  The include file 
can have any
mixture of HTML and PHP, including defining tables, etc. If it contains any PHP 
it should
be named as xxxxx.php. It is also good practice to put <?php at the start, and 
?> at the
end, though it doesn't appear to make any difference.
