How do I split this into a html file and a php file?

With the help of an EE Expert I obtained the attached code to create and send an email form. Is there any way I can split it into a HTML file and a separate PHP file?
# This code has been developed to collect data from an email form and email it to us

# some settings of POST vars
if (!isset($_POST['send']))  $send = ''; else $send = $_POST['send'];
if (!isset($_POST['toText'])) $toText = ''; else $toText = $_POST['toText'];
if (!isset($_POST['ccText'])) $ccText = ''; else $ccText = $_POST['ccText'];
if (!isset($_POST['subjectText'])) $subjectText = ''; else $subjectText = $_POST['subjectText'];
if (!isset($_POST['msgText'])) $msgText = ''; else $msgText = $_POST['msgText'];
if (!isset($_POST['ccText'])) $ccTexth = ''; else $ccText = $_POST['ccText'];
if (!isset($_POST['bccText'])) $bccText = ''; else $bccText = $_POST['bccText'];
if (!isset($_POST['nameText'])) $nameText = ''; else $nameText = $_POST['nameText'];
if (!isset($_POST['fromText'])) $fromText = ''; else $fromText = $_POST['fromText'];

if ($send == "") {
    $title="Email Form";
    $announce=" ";
else {
	if($fromText === "") die("No name!");
  	$title="Test Email Page";
  	$announce="Your Message has been Sent!";
  	$header = "From: ".$fromText."\r\n";
  	$header .= "Cc: ".$ccText."\n";
  	$header .= "Reply-To : ".$fromText."\r\n";
  	$header .= "Return-Path : ".$fromText."\r\n";
  	$header .= "X-Mailer: PHP\r\n";
  	$header .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
  	$header .= "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1\r\n";
	mail($toText, $subjectText, $msgText, $header, '-f'.$fromText);

	<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
	<title><?php echo($title)?></title>
	<style type="text/css">
			A:link { color: #999999; }
			A:visited { color: #999999; }
			A:hover {color: #0099ff;}

	<script type="text/javascript">

		function check()
		var at=document.getElementById("fromText").value.indexOf("@");
		var eml=document.getElementById("fromText").value;
		var nam=document.getElementById("nameText").value;
		var alerttxt="";
		var submitOK="true";

		if (eml.length < 5 || at == -1)
			alerttxt=alerttxt+"Please enter a valid e-mail address!\r\n";
			//return false;

		if (nam.length < 3)
			alerttxt=alerttxt+"Please enter your name.\r\n";
			//return false;

		if (submitOK=="false")
			return false;

		// -->

	<body bgcolor="#ddeedd">
		<div align="center">
			<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" summary="" width="580">

Ok so I am better off leaving it all in a PHP file so I can get the desired response after submitting the form.

The reason I want to do it is because we have just had a bundle of books printed in readiness for this and the reference is to so I was going to create a folder called order and put the form in there as order.htm. Is there any way I can achieve this with a PHP file?
You can change the name of the file to 'order.php' if you want.  Just make sure and change it in the form tag too.

It is my understanding that             will open     index.htm     in the order folder.
If I rename it this fiel to      order.php     wouldn't I have to enter   to open it?
Yes.  You might be able to make it 'index.php' in the '' directory.

i'll try that to see if it works

Yep. It works. I just wasn't sure if it would find index.php.

Thanks very much for your help
