I have:
Apache 2.2.1
PHP 5.3.6
MySQL 5.5.10
All up and running fine. I can server HTML and PHP pages as advertised. What I can not do is embed PHP in an HTML page. I have tried all the different types of escape codes:
<? ... ?>
<?php ... ?>
<script language="php" > ... <?script>
<% ... %>
None of them have the slightest effect. I think I must have Apache configured wrong - but where?

Only php files are parsed by the php interpreter -> rename your .htm(l) to .php

not true... you can tell apache with files to parse.

as module
Code:

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .php .htm .html


with fcgid
Code:

   AddHandler fcgid-script .php .htm .html
   FcgidWrapper "c:/php/php-cgi.exe" .php
   FcgidWrapper "c:/php/php-cgi.exe" .htm
   FcgidWrapper "c:/php/php-cgi.exe" .html


For parsing <? and <% you have to edit your php.ini

for <? set short_open_tag = On
for the <% set asp_tags = Off

<?php and <script language="php" > ... <?script> will be parsed by default.

Well much a tag mix doesn't it is well coded.

However, if you still have a question please ask again.

true... but it is not a good idea.
Depending on the use of the server you might get compatiblity, performance and/or security issues...

performance? I tried it a lot with php as module. A file without php tags coast no time. I haven't tried yet with PHP over fcgid.
Security issues? Yes it can be. As I wrote above. Mixing all that file extensions and different kind of PHP tags is a very bad programming attitude. And I don't recommend to do that. it has nothing to do with code cleaness. But if someone comes with a question how to set up a config I tell how to do it, even it is some kinda bad style / behaviour. I not here for parenting Wink
