I've got a file which contains *mostly* html but some php such as in:

<a href="<?php echo $linkref ?>">Click here</a>

, the usual kind of stuff. Now, if I play around with the extension of the file and the associated Preferences/General/Content Types and Preferences/General/Editors/File Associations then I can achieve either of 2 results, neither of which is totally satisfactory:

1) the editor will treat the file as HTML and will mark the above line as an error - "Start tag (<a>) not closed" because it trips over the php opening tag, but on the other hand it makes a good job of spotting any *real* HTML coding errors;

OR

2) the editor will treat the file as PHP in which case the line above is
parsed as valid BUT I get no help with spotting *real* HTML errors.

In the "File Association" preference referred to above, you can set an
"Associated editor" as Default, but I can't work out what (if anything) this
actually does?

Have I missed something? How do other people cope with this problem?

TIA
