Why go back and forth with PHP and HTML?

Why would you want to constantly break in and out of PHP, when you could just write the entire file in PHP, and echo the HTML? All PHP is much easier to read and understand for me.

html, is at browser / client level, and PHP is at server level, if the code requires at HTML level, it is a good practice, to handle the code at HTML level, so that the travel to the server, and the file size which brings in after accessing the server would be less in size, that results in speed.
