Since PHP lives on the server and is not interpreted by the browser, you 
can't use PHP to script events.  You'll need to use JavaScript.

Specifically, in this case, what you need to do is something like this:

<input type="button" value="Test" onClick="javascript:alert('testing');" />

The best thing that you can do in this situation is to have PHP generate 
the JavaScript and send it to the browser, which hopefully speaks JavaScript.

With the example you have below, the source code of your page will show this:

<input type="button" value="text" onclick=testing, testin 123>

which probably isn't what you want.
