You don't have to.
You can just name it "whatever.php" *WITH NO CHANGES* and do
echo "before the include<hr/>";
echo "after the include<hr/>";
If the included file does not contain <?php ... ?> tags, then it is processed as HTML.
After all, you can always go back and forth between PHP and HTML in *ANY* PHP code:
<h1>This is HTML</h1><br/>
echo "<h2>This is from PHP code</h2><br/>";
And this is more HTML.<br/>
echo "And more from PHP code<br/>";
