    PHP is a scripting language like HTML but has more power to it (an understatement I think). It is a good server side language, IMHO.

    CGI tends to use Perl and you'll find the debate between which is better almost religious. Perl users say PHP is crap and vice versa (at least that's been my experience).

    Yes, you can make php using notepad. It is a simple scripting language.

    You don't have to have any database if you don't want it.

    Depends on what kind of information it is. You can store information in a text file, a database, etc.

    HTML, JavaScript, PHP should only be code with notepad or a text editor! Never use a program that created HTML for you because they suck! I personnality use textpad http://www.textpad.com/

    I like Dreamweaver. I use Notepad for quick edits, but because Dreamweaver has syncronization, check in/out, and database binding functions, I like using it for a majority of my programming.

    I only, however, use the code side of Dreamweaver and not the WYSIWYG side. I hate WYSIWYG editors for the most part, unless it's a simple stupid site. It does not mix well with PHP.

    Thought i'd say it before anyone asks:
    WYSIWYG = What you see is what you get
