    Hello Lilie,

    Books on PHP like PHP for dummies could be of help.

    I would be willing to help you learn.

    The first steps on getting a handle on things is understanding the syntax of standard commands .

    DO you have any programming background?

    Understand that PHP is a server side language.

    So this means:

    
    <?php
    echo  "<center><font face=\"Tahoma\">HELLO</font></center>";
    ?>
    
    Code (markup):
    Would produce rendered html only. You would not see the "echo" command.

    So you can break in php any where you want on the page:

    
    <?php 
    $mytitle="Page title";
    ?>
    <head>
    <title>Hello this is my <? echo $mytitle ?> for this web site</title>";
    </head>
    
    Code (markup):
    If you ask some questions I would be more then happy to answer and assist.

    Converse & Park's PHP5 and MySQL Bible is an incredibly useful resource. It takes you from the very very basics through building a fully-featured site using PHP/MySQL. Tons of reference material and online examples that go with the book.

    Orielly has some good books on PHP. I suggest you start there and work your way into OOP and the design patterns associated with OOP.

    I'm more of a book man myself, and I would recommend the visual quickstart pro series for learning PHP, but aside from that, another good source would be:

    Well, a great place to start is PHPVIDEOTUTORIALS.com as mentioned above.

    I'm also shocked that no one didn't mention Lynda.com another great resource to learn, well, everything.

    Too true. Have you ever programmed before? I could probably give you some help by email.
