As far as anyone is concerned they do the same... Check the archives for
MANY MANY past discusions

fopen? here is a quick snip from the user comments $page= join ('', file
('')); that basically loads all the HTML at into
the varible $page... neat huh :)

PHP doesn't really write HTML for you, thats your job... so a function or
a simple loop could do this...
for ($i=0; $i<3; $i++)
    echo "<input type='hidden' name='$$var[$i]' value='$var[$i]'>";

No problems :)
