You d'ont have to load PHP3 files from inside an HTML file.
PHP3 files are HTML files containing PHP3 functions enclosed in the HTML
sintax by using:
this PHP functions are then parsed by Apache and the result is sent to the
requesting user agent and displayed in your Netscape window.
But for this to work properly, the files ends with .php3 instead of .html.
