The difference, I suspect, is that when you enter
http://blahblah/pmwiki.php you are requesting a php document but the
server intercedes and returns an HTML document, which the browser
displays as you would expect.  With the source, I would have thought
it would return a 'text' document, but apparently it *returns* it as
PHP.  Subtle differences.


Glad to be of assistance.
