HTML is not a programming language, but a markup language. hence there are no variables. you have to do it in the programming language that creates the HTML.

You can save it in php file type. but you need php tag for your program... example :
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
  2. <html xmlns="">
  3. <head>
  4. <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
  5. <title>Sample By Zick</title>
  6. </head>
  7. <body>
  8. <?php    
  9.             $refid="porn";
  10.             $firstname="JOHN";
  12.             echo 'Hello '.$firstname.'<br>';        
  13.  ?>
  14.     <a href="<?php echo $refid; ?>">Click Me baby</a>
  15. </body>
  16. </html>
just save it like this, filename.php

but you need xampp to run php files.
