For my understanding, it means that the webpage will submit to itself no matter what the file name is. so with the $_PHP_SELF you can put the php code inside the webpage (like what you did in your other post) not in another file, but the extension has to be .php NOT .html

I don't understand what you meant by $_PHP_SELF. I think it has to be
action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>"

Please read about Server and execution environment information from the php manual.
