PHP is a server side programming language
XHTML is a markup language
same applies to XML
Now, if you want to get into webdesign think what you need to learn about it
Designing with web standards (http://www.zeldman.com/dwws/)
Search Engine Visibility ( http://www.searchenginesbook.com/)
Eric Meyer On CSS (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0735714258/qid=1111218378/sr=8-1/ref=pd_csp_1/102-1147286-8058534?v=glance&s=books&n=507846)
Recommended web sites
Web Standards Group (http://webstandardsgroup.org/)
Web Standards Planet (http://www.w3planet.info/site/)
and finally go with standars and go with coding don't let WYSIWYG control you.

You can use PHP to generate your pages on the server. This way you can make dynamic content for example, gotten from a database.
You can use PHP in combination with all the other things you mention (you can just make PHP to generate XML files). It is a bit more difficult to learn then plain XHTML and CSS, but it can certainly make your webpages much more powerfull!

I personally use as most web devs do and that is a combination of xhtml and php, primarily cause php is free and if you are used to C/C++ constructs it is easy to pick up.

I've read more of the xml book I got. I believe xml allows you to catagorize your page, allowing easy information extraction. Unfortunately my imagination isn't strong enough for me to figure out why one would do that.
I probably won't need PHP (again, I'm not entirely sure what it's for in the first place). I'm also thinking most of what PHP does could be done with Python (which I already have at least some grasp of). Either way, thanks for all the input everybody.
