HTML doesn't work here, you gotta use BBCode.

Basically, your posting in a PHP forum so all replies will be pretty biased.

That being said, go with PHP.

I think there are more PHP jobs out there than jsp, but you're really better off checking yourself. Hit up Monster or similar and take a quick look at number and pay of PHP vs JSP jobs. That'll give you some real, solid information, instead of anecdotal stuff from programmers.

Moved to Web Development.

If you have to ask, I'm assuming you don't have much programming experience. Based on that, go with PHP. JSP and the Java EE platform is for enterprise-grade applications. There are plenty of Java EE jobs, but it's not a good starting platform. If you want to start with Java, start with the Java SE platform and learn vanilla Java first.
