    You don't need any special software to create or edit PHP files, any plaintext editor will do (Notepad, EditPlus, HTML Kit etc). To run them, however, you need to have a server with PHP installed on it.

    PHP is a programming language, not design markup like HTML is. Thus, there are no WYSIWYG editors for PHP.

    actually there is a program i just found called phpdesigner... it's not a wysiwig editor because as chroder said there is no need for one... however, phpdesigner is supposed to be able to help you debug files... thought that might help to know. I haven't worked with it yet but if you're interested...

    Yeah, there are lots of PHP IDE's that help you write code, phpDesigner probably being the best free one. The other two most popular ones are PhpEd and Zend Studio.
