WAMP is fine, as long as it is working correctly. Personally I like apache/mysql installed seperately... easier to upgrade. But if it works then that is all that is needed.

As for the 'tag hints', that would depend on dw version. Also you need to make sure you set up the new pages to be .php before the tag hints will appear, since they won't in a html document. This will also depend on how the site is set up!

edit->preferences->new document set default to PHP

Another thing, DW likes to 'fix tags' this can be a bad thing in php. You can fix that in preferences too. just ad .php to code rewriting.

Tag hints should work for you. They can be eneabled in the preferences aswell.
If you look at your tag Libbrary and there are no tags for php, I think you can download them from the DW site.

Also, you will have to start php in the document (if you haven't)
[code]<?php

?>

[/code]
