Godfrey,

<< Is php difficult to learn? >>

Not at all.  It's pretty simple and flexible, and the tools that are
available are pretty mature, so it's very easy to go from nothing to
something in short order.

I had never done anything major with PHP before coding our PHP extension for
ElevateDB, and it was easy to get up-to-speed.

Frederick,

<< If I want to use DBISAM as my database, will this mean that I will need
to write some sort of a middleware in PHP that resides on the 3rd party host
together with the DBISAM tables and EWB can talk to the middleware to
retrieve and update data? >>

Correct.  But, as I indicated, I will be providing some PHP examples that
will help with this process.

<< Will this scenario work for both Windows and Linux based web sites? >>

Both DBISAM and ElevateDB are going to be a tough issue on Linux, due to the
fact that we don't have a Linux DBISAM or ElevateDB ODBC Driver/PHP
extension.

I found it fairly easy to pick up too once I got used to the syntax.  Although I don't know how many times I have typed something like email.subject instead of email->subject and wondered why my stupid code wasn't working.  Smile
