This sounds like URL rewriting or some other apache stuff, and as such is 
not directly caused by PHP itself. You should check the httpd.conf file and 
possible .htaccess files in the directories. Others can clarify better how 
this works.

It seems that the file where you see these is a template file of a kind, and 
is dynamically processed by another script when requested, thus replacing 
<<title>> with the actual page title and so on. At least partial separation 
of content from the code and design, which is usually a good thing. Could 
even be that there is a non-custom template engine running.
