For the sake of it with things progressing further toward open-source, I've made the entire Insert Coin PHP source code (as of June 24, 2008) available for download.

http://www.4shared.com/file/52584333/d1386c3d/insert_coin_2008_6_24.html

In my relative hurry to get the site up and running, the commenting is sorely lacking, but that will progress with time and future updates made available.

I use two different freely available PHP utilities, on top of my own code:
-HTML Purifier
-phpThumb

And two freely available JavaScript utilities
-Prototype.js
-tinyMCE

PHP tells the server what HTML to output.

Very simple example:
<?php
$x = true;
if($x == true)
  echo "<b>TRUE</b>";
else
  echo "<i>FALSE</i>";
?>

The source actually includes PHP files, CSS files, JavaScript files, an SQL file and images.

Unlike everyone else here I know what you mean and know what you are doing. I just don't know how to code what and what effect it does.

Well, there are two points to understand:
1 - PHP (amd other server-side languages) allows you to reuse code, such as menus and headers, across multiple pages while only writing it once in one file.  Though technically I could pull this off with JavaScript.

2 - It allows interaction with a database.  This is the most important since it means you can add and edit content without editing a single file.  This comment, for example, just inserts into a database table.
