php and html are used together. html provides structure for a web page(tables, other components). php provides functionality(like calculating sales tax).

here's a link to a php tutorial which I find very helpful:

php helps with making your site more dynamic; ie: live news, results, posts, pictures, just about anything you can think of.

javascript is client side code.
php is servier side code.
when you bring up a web site, you will most likely be running some javascript on your PC. The web site may be runninig php. Check out the url addresses when logged into GTG. Lots of php.

you can do a lot with javascript, but you can do much more with php.
