I only use "<?php" and have been working with "short_open_tag=Off" 
successfully up to this point.

Running server-info shows that mod_php5.c is loaded.  The module 
prefork.c is also loaded while worker.c is not.  Httpd is loading the 
/etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf file that came with the installation which 
loads libphp5.so when prefork.c is also loaded.

The php.conf file also includes the following lines:

    # Cause the PHP interpreter to handle files with a .php extension.
    AddHandler php5-script .php
    AddType text/html .php

    # Add index.php to the list of files that will be served as directory
    # indexes.
    DirectoryIndex index.php

The three command results show up in the server-info page so they are 
being processed as well.
