I think you might have a problem simply based on the nature of PHP and
the nature of Javascript - any PHP functions you may run are already
done server-side before your client-side Javascript even begins.

I need to get a JavaScript variable value into a php variable. I have
something like this:

<some JS>
var name = bob;

This is at the end of a function. My first thought was to do this:

<? $phpVariable = ?>name<? ; ?>

But I think it will choke at the end of the first delimter because
its a statement that is not closed by a semicolon..
