hmmm... not sure about the cgi part. you'll probably need to start the file
with something like

 #!/usr/loca/bin/php -q

either way, within the file, you also need to tell the php parser what is
php and what is html. surround the php code with <?php ?> tags like

$var = 'Hello World';
<table><tr><td><?php print($var); ?></td></tr></table>
