I have people telling me that I MUST put the <?include?> file before or inside the
header of the .php file I am writing before a script is pulled into my file. I usually
just put the <?include?> whereever I need it on the page. Actually have it embedded in
an IF statement, so that if the conditions are not met, the script is not run and
there is no need to pull in the script. It works fine....
Is placing the include at the top absolutely required, good programming convention or
