PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor - This is a scripting language that is primarily used to serve HTML at the web server end of the internet. The interpreter processes commands that generate and sometimes are mixed with embedded HTML. The end result is a dynamic web page that is capable of presenting mixed data from different sources such as databases etc.

Hyper Text Markup Language - This is the basic language that your browser reads and displays. The user can see information that has been formatted according to a set of "markup" commands in the HTML. Some commands instruct the browser to display text or graphics in a particular fashion and others allow the user to navigate to new pages or sites.

HTML has become the means of providing a very rich mix of information in imaginative ways. When mixed with CSS and Javascript, a developer can produce highly interactive websites.

This is the term used to describe the use of CSS and Javascript to provide "dynamic"web pages. This can be used to provide validation of input data, control the appearance of certain parts of a page and even produce animation effects.

This technology requires a Flash "plug-in" to play back its contents. It is essentially a language that provides animation and interaction to the user. This can sometimes be used to replace the functionality of a web page.

eXtensible Markup Language - This is a standardised method of representing structured data in a textual form. It is capable of cross-application and cross-platform data interchange.
One of the more recent purposes for the use of this data format is in web services and AJAX enabled sites such as Google Earth. Unlike most data formats, XML can be almost self explanatory when read by a human.

Cascading Style Sheets - Provide the means to standardise the look and feel of a website. Fonts, colours, formatting can all be controlled from a set of centralised style sheets.

This is sometimes referred to as client-side scripting. This is code which runs in the browser and is either triggered to execute by "events" such as page load, mouse movements or clicks or by the inclusion of the script in-line with the HTML code.
This scripting provides functionality in a web page which would otherwise be impossible to implement in HTML alone.

This is code which is executed at the web server and usually provides the web page with connectivity with variable data from such sources as databases or web services. It's main purpose is to provide dynamically changing pages in the form of HTML which is delivered to the browser.
Visual Basic

Some aspects of ASP are better left to components which are compiled into units called DLLs (Dynamic Linked Libraries).
Visual Basic is capable of creating these library units.
