PHP Succeeding Where Java Has Failed

"Real coders use Perl." Yes, Perl is easier to read. I'll say it again, Perl is easier to read. With Perl the computation is done seperatly and then the HTML is printed back to the browser. I find this a lot easier to deal with then having loops, etc. inside HTML. Also, as someone else pointed out, Perl is more secure.

Having said that, it boils down to a question of wether you want the code in the HTML or the HTML in the code. You say tomato and I say to-ma-to ... (an old song for you young folks.)
