Page transition in PHP

Hello Everyone

Please can someone point me in the direction of a really good tutorial or  
discussion on PHP page transition?

What I'm looking for is coverage of page transition that covers:

Breaking out of frames in PHP - for and against arguments with examples;

Carrying forward variables - the various methods of moving variables from  
one page to another with dialogs on the merits of each, covering $_POST,  
$_REQUEST, $_SESSION and other variable types;

Page transition - types and the merits of each - such as simple transition  
(one page name moving to the next page name) down to page rewrite - only  
one page name that rewrites its self dependant on say the menu item that  
you select and maybe calls in 'requires' to acomplish this;

Not too much there is there?  Strangely when searching the internet for  
tutorials and discussion on this subject, the only pages I can find are  
requests for the same thing.  Many excellent sites have excellent tutorials  
on many aspects of using PHP, but equally they seem to overlook this very  
basic area of expertise - because it's so basic!

You won't find any tutorials since PHP runs on the SERVER and doesn't  
know or care what the display looks like. In fact, there's nothing to say  
that a PHP script has to generate any visible output. Displaying the  
information is the job of the Browser on the client, so you need to look  
at client scripts for display options.  A PHP script can write Javascript  
that could control the display.

You left out one method: $_GET. An indepth discussion is beyond the scope  
of this post.

See above, you didn't find anything, because page transitions can't be  
done in PHP, not that it is so basic.
