Hello! I would really appreciate some answers to a few basic questions. I
have done some research online, but it would greatly help me to get direct
1. If my site needs to be available to many browsers, including those that
may not be entirely up-to-date, is PHP a safe option? I mean, I know that
Flash is something people have to have enabled on their browsers, but I
thought I read that PHP is available to all recent browsers as long as the
server the site is hosted on supports PHP. Is this true?

2. How can I preview my PHP while I'm coding? I'm using TextWrangler. I have
already followed the installation tutorial here:
http://foundationphp.com/tutorials/php_leopard.php. The test PHP file does
work in my Safari browser. However, when I try to preview my .php files
created in TextWrangler with Safari it doesn't work.

3. I need something that functions as an iframe. I've been reading that
include() serves this purpose. However, I've found that I have the make the
content in the "iframe" the main content and call the things around it. I
want to do the reverse. I want the other content on the main html page in
place, and just want to call the text in the frame box. Is this doable?

Any suggestions?
