How to echo HTML in PHP ?

  • Last Updated : 31 Jul, 2021

While making a web application with PHP, we often need to print or echo few results in form of HTML. We can do this task in many different ways. Some of methods are described here:

  1. Using echo or print: PHP echo or print can be used to display HTML markup, javascript, text or variables.

    Example 1: This example uses PHP echo to display the result.




    <?php 
        $name = "GeeksforGeeks";
        echo "<h1>Hello User, </h1> <p>Welcome to {$name}</p>";
    ?>

    Output:
    Echo HTML

    Example 2: This example uses PHP print to display the result.




    <?php 
        $name = "GeeksforGeeks";
        print "<h1>Hello User, </h1> <p>Welcome to {$name}</p>";
    ?>

    Output :
    Print HTML

  2. Using echo shorthand or separating HTML: PHP echo shorthand can be used to display the result of any expression, value of any variable or HTML markup.

    Example 1: This example uses PHP echo shorthand to display the result.






    <?php 
        $name = "GeeksforGeeks";
    ?>
       
    <?= "<h1>Hello User,</h1>
        <h1>{$name} welcomes you</h1>" ?>

    Output:
    Using shorthand echo

    Example 2: Separating HTML from PHP




    <?php
        $num = 2;
        for ($i = 1; $i <= 10; $i++) { 
    ?>
       
        <p><?= $num ?> * <?= $i ?>
            = <?= $num * $i ?></p>
       
    <?php
        }
    ?>

    Output:
    Excluding the HTML

  3. Using heredoc: We can use <<< heredoc to print the html. <<< must be followed by an identifier and line break. The same identifier is used to close the body of heredoc.

    Syntax:

    <<<GFG
    // HTML Markup
    GFG;
    

    Note: The ending identifier must not be indented.

    Example:




    <?php
      
    echo <<<GFG
        <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
        <p>I am in heredoc with identifier 'GFG' .</p>
    GFG;
      
    ?>

    Output:
    heredoc
