PHP is a server-side script, therefore it needs to be interpreted by 
the server to work properly.
If you try running it locally (on a machine without PHP) then the 
output will not include your source only. 
for example
<?php
echo "<html><head><title>hello world</title></head>";
echo "<body>Hello World</body></html>";
?>
would display as above from dream weaver.
but like this if accessed via a server
<html><head><title>hello world</title></head>
<body>Hello World</body></html>
I hope this helps explain it to you.
(added: ) 
supposedly, ultradev (with some extensions from the dreamweaver 
exchange) has the ability to parse php code (however, I just installed 
apache on my machine and still use a notepad :)
======
if you want to run php at you pc use apache server.
