Sorry, logic error in previous code. Use this:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title></title>
<script type="text/javascript">
//<![CDATA[
var time = null;
window.onload = function() {
	timerDisplay = document.getElementById('timer');
	time = parseFloat(timerDisplay.innerHTML);
	time = isNaN(time)?5:time; // default time
	timerDisplay.innerHTML = time.toFixed(2).replace('.', ':');
	setInterval(countdown, 1000);
}
function countdown() {
	if(time > 0.01) {
		time -= 0.01;
		if(time%1 > 0.59) time = Math.floor(time) + 0.59;
		timerDisplay.innerHTML = time.toFixed(2).replace('.', ':');
	} else timerDisplay.innerHTML = "0:00";
}
//]]>
</script>
</head>

<body>
Time left: <span id="timer"><?= $ti ?></span>
</body>
</html>

I'm sorry, but sam2912's code doesn't work entirely because it not allows to get $ti value. Using window.onload, your script run before $ti value is getted so countdown will start always from 5, the default value. I made a little modification posted in code snippet below.

Hope this helps

function start() {

	timerDisplay.innerHTML = time.toFixed(2).replace('.', ':');
	setInterval(countdown, 1000);
}
function countdown() {
	if(time > 0.01) {
		time -= 0.01;
		if(time%1 > 0.59) time = Math.floor(time) + 0.59;
		timerDisplay.innerHTML = time.toFixed(2).replace('.', ':');
	} else timerDisplay.innerHTML = "0:00";
}
//]]>
</script>
</head>

<body>
<?php
    if (isset($_REQUEST['ti'])){
        $ti = $_REQUEST['ti'];
    }else{
        $ti = 5;
    }
    echo "Time left: <span id='timer'>$ti</span>";
?>
    
<?php
echo "<br><br>INSOMMA $ti<BR>";
    echo "<script type='text/javascript'>start();</script>";
?>
</body>
</html>

Someone can tell me why in my test the sam2912's script didn't get $ti value and always countdfown started from 5?
This only because I would understand where is my error, if one error I made... Thanks

<?= $ti ?> is a PHP variable printed into the span. It should be a positive number. Otherwise, the code will not be able to parse the value, and will take 5 as the default.

Thank,sam. But I wrote:

<?php
    if (isset($_REQUEST['ti'])){
        $ti = $_REQUEST['ti'];
    }
?>

leaving your code untouched. Then, if I typed http://localhost/countdown.php?ti=10 countdown didn't start from 10 but from 5. This is what I don't understand. I post the entire code I tried: it doesn't work. Bye
<?php
    if (isset($_REQUEST['ti'])){
      $ti = $_REQUEST['ti'];
    
?>

in that case you can remove these two lines of code:

        time = parseFloat(timerDisplay.innerHTML);
        time = isNaN(time)?5:time; // default time

and replace with

        time = <?= php $ti; ?>;

Honestly you should open a new question: two months are past from the closing this question, the problem is not the same (it's only related to the original one) and here you can't give points for new solution.

However, you can try this:

<input type="hidden" name="instant_time" value="<span id="timer"><?php= $ti ?></span>">

try

<input type="hidden" name="instant_time" value="<?php= $ti ?>">

Cheers
