Hello Bode,
You obviously purposefully asked your browser not to parse you php code. You 
are linking to a javascript instead of a php file. It's this simple; if you are 
create a .php file and u wish to incorporate it in your html code, you should 
use a function called include();. Simply try something like:

<?php include(pp.php); ?>

Let me know what u get from that.
