I am just getting started creating an application using PHP/MySQL.  I have built a few before, but would like to streamline my workflow on this one using PHP Includes.  The page that will utilize the includes has <div> tags for CSS layouts, do i need to specify the width/height in the Include file or will it automatically adjust to the inherited file?

It will auto-adjust based on that pages CSS.

When you include an external page for the purposes of importing content, it renders as if it was on the page already. In other words, if index.php has an include function for navigation.php, the CSS styles declared in index.php would be inherited by the contents of navigation.php, whether you declare width or height attributes or not.

// To include an external file in PHP
<?php include("navigation.php"); ?>

Exactly correct. When you use includes, just think of it as combining two pages codes into one code.
