Finally switching from Classic ASP to PHP...help with the real basics needed!

Ok, after much deliberation and the realisation that, whilst it works fine just now, Classic ASP just isn't the future I have decided to try PHP as this seems the most logical language to proceed onto. Btw, I'd take any advice on this because I was gutted when I found out Classic ASP was on the way out - so soon after I felt like I was finally getting the hang of it as well! :o( I'm also quite fond of ASP and Windows hosting but that may well just be bad habits!

I've managed to source some PHP basics and, thankfully, Dreamweaver is obviously good at building the code so I can do that and then take a peak but there are one or two things I always hand coded in Classic ASP like....

<%IF Request.QueryString("querystringname") = 1 Then%>
HTML code here
<%End IF%>

How do I do the above in PHP? Also, can anyone help point me in the right direction for converting to PHP from Classic ASP?
Much appreciated.
