PHP Script In An HTML Site

I have a HTML/CSS site and have recently been hit with lots of form spam (bots sending me bogus form fills). I have found a way that sound like it will fix this but it requires that I add a bit of PHP code. Problem is I don't know where or how to add this code.

Can anyone direct me on this?

This might be getting a bit over my head. Do you know anyone for a few bucks could handle this for me? Its too small a job for Elance, etc.

There's 2 steps, both easy:

1. Add one line to your .htaccess file (assuming you're using an apache server and you have not disabled the use of .htaccess files by disallowing overrides; in which case the same line needs to be added to your httpd.conf and the apache server needs to be restarted.).
AddType application/x-httpd-php .htm .html

or create the file with that content if you have none.

2. add the php code you created to your .html files
<?php "your code goes here" ?>

You can split this out over multiple line if you prefer:
"your code goes here"
as you please.

That's it, unless you're not using apache, in which case I've no clue whatsoever.

Now the core of the problem: spammers submitting forms isn't all that easy to solve, and I kinda doubt adding something to the creation of the form alone is going to stop them - I'd assume there's going to be a need for a lot more where you process the form submissions.

we can get this by doing modifications in .httc related file in your hosting root
