It sounds like your just trying to open the file straight from your hard
drive using IE. Unfortunately, PHP doesn't work like HTML files or
JavaScript in that its not IE or any other web browser that "makes PHP
work". It is actually a server that works out all the PHP bits, puts it all
in the right places in the HTML file and then sends it to your web browser
which then works out how to display the HTML code and displays it.
Therefore, to get your PHP files to work, you have to either upload them to
a host server or install a server such as Apache with the PHP Module on to
your computer.
