You can do serverside parsing, look at http://uk2.php.net/ for more info...

the end product of a php site is an html site.
but while clean html sites is static only changes when a some1 actually alters the file.
php websites are dynamic and can be created out from databases whose data can change over time by user interaction/developer.
so php websites can have forums,guestbooks.. basicly anything that can be interpreted as a collection of changeable data.
while an HTML page mostly will be a collection of static data

It saves up a LOT of time when updating or creating multiple pages where only the content (text, images) changes.
You may see it as a html page template though it is not entirely true. PHP can also do a lot of other things but all of them are about showing content (HTML does the same but is very limited in it).

I recommend using firepages phpdev bundle to get started, tho.
Get it here: http://www.firepages.com.au/
ps. php.net has an excellent online manual as well.
