This is my problem.......and probably due to the fact that i am new to php. this php file returns results that look tacky at best. It is just a blank screen that says "message sent". how do I get a "message sent" message within my html doc? do i need to use something other than "echo"?

$status = $_GET['status'];
if($status=="1") {
echo '<div class="successAlert"
style="width:560px; margin:auto">
Message successfully sent!</div>';
} elseif ($status=="0") {
echo '<div class="warningAlert"
style="width:560px; margin:auto">
Your message was not sent. Please check your input!</div>';
} else {

Do you mean how do you add php to a HTML file with a .html extension? Or just how do you embed php within HTML in an .php file?

What about SSI if you must have it in a html file. You dont need to use print or echo in a *.php file i.e

it's not echo that's tacky, it's what it echos ;)

you can add html to the echo

if you have a template you may be able to use that

if you use a header and footer site wide you could use include to put them around your text
