PHP is most commonly used on Apache as part of the LAMP environment. You'll also find Perl and Ruby, but PHP has a huge percentage of the Apache market. There has been a strong trend towards Web Services (particularly Java), run on JBoss and/or Tomcat (also Apache products). For IIS you almost always see ASP.Net. This also comes in a Web Services flavor. Right now Apache has a little over 50% market share, while IIS runs around 35%.

PHP is a server side script which allows for dynamic content between user and host such as emailing forms and so on, HTML is a mark-up script which all webpages are made of as it is the basic building block also Flash isn't a script it uses Action Script which is the script part of the plug-in. :)

I don't know about market shares or percentages. My guess is that it would be PHP. It's open source, available on a lot of platforms, ties in with MySQL, and it's well-supported.
