i suggest you go out and buy yourself a php tutorial book. php in easy steps is a pretty good book that teaches the basics of php. it's really cheap and easy to understand.

well you aren't really gonna find a wysiwyg php editor like dreamweaver or frontpage does html. there are plenty of premade scripts out there for all kinds of stuff so you can get around learning the finer points of php but you are still going to have to take the time to learn the basics so that you can integrate it into your site.

You can download and install PHP and Apache on your computer to test your scripts and you can use a text editor or something like PHP Developer 2005 or 2006 to develop the code. But yes, you'll need a host that has PHP on it to run PHP scripts.
