    You can't view PHP code in the same way as you can HTML. If you just open them in IE/Moz the browser doesn't know what to do and outputs plain text. You need to setup your PC as a server or upload to an existing server where the pages can be correctly parsed and the PHP executed.

    A very common server for PHP is Apache and is usually installed with mySQL. If you're feeling brave take a look at PHPTriad at; it's fairly straight forward to install but can be a bit daunting if you're new to it.
