You can't just save it as an HTML file on your dev machine and open it in firefox: it needs to be opened from a server which supports PHP.

If you don't then the php code can;t be executed so you will get a blank display.
Try it:
HTML
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en" dir="ltr">
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title></title>
  </head>
  <body>
    This machine <?php echo "supports php"; ?>
  </body>
</html>
Will print "this machine" but nothing else.
