    i have noticed that some sites have ssi enabled pages with a .htm extension instead of .shtml

    how is this done?

    My guess would be that the servers have Frontpage server extensions installed.

    I use some ssi's on pages which end in .htm (must be the free server I use <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon15.gif> )

    just add this line to your .htaccess file.

    AddHandler server-parsed .html .htm

    It will then parse SSI in the file extensions mentioned (.html .htm)

    Apparently there is a little extra strain on a server, but I've never had a problem, nor have I had a host complain about it.

    Not all hosts allow this, unfortunately. This is the one thing I don't like at FutureQuest. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]
