do php file sizes count in page load time?

If I build a webpage using PHP scripts (in various 'include' files) with a total file size of say, 100k, does the 100k add to the page load time for the user? Say the scripts print out a 5k HTML page; is the end result just the 5k, or is it 105k? (I know there are other factors too; my question here is just whether the PHP file sizes factor in.)

How long the PHP code takes to run and how big the resultant HTML output is, are the deciding factors.

Every extra include adds a little bit more too

Great, thanks. The script time is about average so I guess I'm in good shape.
