wine, ie6 and php

I am trying to get ie6 working through wine so I can sort out any compatibility issues with my website. Unfortunately, ie6 under wine really does not seem to want to correctly parse php files.

In fact, it seems to just ignore any php scripts in the file completely.

Is there a way to register the file type with ie so that it will execute the script instead of ignoring it?

I 've lost you. PHP is executed in the server and the output of php (probably HTML) is sent to the client. A browser is not executing PHP code. Apache (a WEB server) is executing the PHP script.

JavaScript is client side. PHP is server side.

you are all spot on. In my haste to see if ie6 was working properly I tried to simply open the php file instead of pointing the browser to localhost. Of course the php scripts were not executed by the server and there was no output.

I guess I can pretend that it was too late at night to be doing this stuff...

Thanks for the responses.
