I have been using existing php/mysql forms at work to create more of the same forms...lots of copy and paste. These were originally done by a Unix admin who was learning php on the fly. All the forms work correctly, but all the php code is mixed in with the html. Can php be put in external files similar to what can be done with css? If anyone has read the Sitepoint book "Build Your Own Database Driven Web Site Using PHP and MySQL" Is this topic covered?
