What are a list of words you should not use when programming PHP?

I know there are some words you should avoid using when writing PHP. Words that are predefined functions and variables. Such as “load. ” Does anyone know a website that lists these words (so I know what to avoid)? And can they easily explain why you should not use them (so I can explain this to someone)?

Should I use Java EE or switch to Ruby on Rails?

I’m interested in getting a small web application started fairly quickly. This web app might change quickly or need to scale up.

At the same time, my day job requires I learn Java EE. I am already experienced with Java SE. So it seems natural to use Java EE both at work and in my web project, except I’m concerned about getting this done quickly (in a couple months).

Should I learn Ruby on Rails to start my project, or use Java EE? It seems RoR would be quicker, except learning RoR and Java EE at the same time might be a bad idea.

So, should I learn RoR just for my web app, even though I’ll already be learning Java EE at my day job, or might I be more effective focusing on Java EE technology for both?

$('#child').after($('<p />')).text('This becomes a sibling of #child'));
$('#child').before($('<p />')).text('Same here, but this is go about #child'));
