I am learning php and it says whitespace are ignored.
ok, I see that, put can some one tell me why the spaces between " Welcome" and "to" are ignored and the other spaces between the other words are not.

<?php echo '<hi Welcome           to john's car lot</h1>'; ?>

In HTML, whitespace is collapsed.  One space, or a million spaces, it's all the same.
That does not mean it is ignored, it means the second and on whitespace character in a row is ignored.  This is also generally but not always true within PHP scripting as well as HTML.
