PHP Radio Button Forms

Displaying information from radio buttons in a form

Hey, I am a novice at html, and although I am fairly competent at the basic programming, when it gets to complex coding (complex to me) I'm stuck, I have made a form using radio buttons in basic html, but with lack of foresight, I didn't realise that I do not have the knowledge to display the data without getting it on an e-mail and displaying it manually, I need some help with coding a php page to display information from a form with radio buttons, as nearly all tutorials I have found only tell you how to display text forms.
Any help will be much apppreciated, thanks.

Displaying the radio button value is exactly the same as displaying a text field's value. Just output it in PHP.

If your radio button is called "cheese" for example, dp <? echo $HTTP_POST_VARS["cheese"];?> and that should output the value.

Is PHP like Pearl (Do you need to be online)? 'Cos I've got the code right for the html and the php pages, but it just won't work.

PHP is a server-side language. If you are asking if you can open and use PHP pages in a browser like you can with HTML, the answer is no, not unless you are being served the pages by a web server with a PHP parser/processor installed.
