    Question Can't read css Code Archive

    I purchased HTML Utopia: Designing Without Tables Using CSS.
    I downloaded the "Code Archive" and when I clicked on getcode.php I got a bunch of gibberish I cannot read.
    Can anyone tell me what program I need to open this file? Or what I need to do to read it?
    I am a relative beginner wanting to learn more about xhtml and css. I do not know anything about php What do I need to open and read (and use) a file that has a .php extension?

    You need winzip to open the code archive after it downloads.

    Thanks. I did not realize that a file with a .php extension was a zip file. I was able to unzip the archive and get the css code.
    I don't know why Customer Support at Sitepoint was unable to tell me that. I was disappointed when they told me that Customer Service was not able to answer my question about how to open the archive.

    www.7-zip.org has a free, open source .zip archive program that works just as well as WinZip

    The php extension is not a zip file. The download is a zip.
