Why use PHP over Perl on your pages?

The biggest advantage of PHP over Perl is that PHP was designed for scripting for the web. The flexibility / complexity of Perl makes it easier to write code. However, because of this, another author / coder will have a hard time reading that same code. PHP has a less confusing and stricter format...all without losing flexibility. In addition, PHP is easier to integrate into existing HTML than Perl. PHP has pretty much all the 'good' functionality of Perl; constructs, syntax and so on, without making it as complicated as Perl can be. Perl is a very tried and true language, it's been around since the late eighties, but PHP is maturing very quickly.
