Moved the topic here, since it was more of a question than feedback...
PHP coding isn't something you do in a program, other than Notepad or a similar program (UltraEdit). At this moment there is no WYSIWYG editor than handles PHP tags, unfortunately.
Are the main resources for PHP and MySQL at the moment. There are some great books out there as well. PHP & MySQL in 21 days....don't know the publisher right now...have a book on PHP from the same publisher, it is great (and if you actually read it, you'll learn alot (personally I am too lazy for that ))
