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.

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

And two freely available JavaScript utilities

PHP tells the server what HTML to output.

Very simple example:
$x = true;
if($x == true)
  echo "<b>TRUE</b>";
  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.
