In the browser there is no PHP page. PHP is just a server-side script language that constructs HTML pages and sends them to the client. So if you want to make-up your browser page, you do it with HTML (or CSS) attributes.

Hi Yasmine,
The short answer is no. but read on....
PHP is a server side language that sends out html to the browser to display to the user.

The client Requests a page, the server recieves this request and sends out a response (html, xml or anything else). The PHP we write controls what the server sends out. So if a user is requesting a page to display in a browser, the PHP whould respond in HTML using PHP to print out anything that needs to be bespoke to thier request.

if you don't understand, google request response.

But again, No php can't directly control presentation....

It can appear to control presentation by printing out the html, but it is still presentation by HTML.
