communicating to server with php

Hey guys, im new to blender, but i’ve had a look around and noticed that blender are doing a web plugin so it can display games etc inside browsers. I’m just wondering if any one know if you can get blender to talk to php scripts so the user can interact with the movie from outside of the blender interface, like you can with actionscript and flash.

For example, if I wanted the user to be able to click on a link in HTML to change the appearance of the blender movie…

Any ideas? cheers guys
