Question: What is a 'latex' file?

If you know how to convert from PHP into this format, then all you need to do is (assuming you're using mysql) read through these mysql tutorials.

I was kind of wandering that myself. Never heard of a latex file format before, and the PHP manual doesn't seem to know it either.
Closest thing I found was this pear class.

In the end it doesn't even matter what a latex file is.

You will just have to know the *syntax* of that format well enough to be able to echo your data correctly. Just as you would a HTML page for a web-page.
