SHTML is the common extension used to denote a file that uses Server Side Includes.

<!--#echo var="DATE_LOCAL" -->
Copy and paste this into a text file, save it as test.shtml or something like that, put it on your server and call it from a browser.
If it shows the date, ssi is enabled on your server.

Thank you -
One more question, is it common to make an index page index.shtml versus .html? My main page needs to use SSI.

Well, it's not that far out of the ordinary. The SEs will receive the page as if it had no includes and as far as I know, there is no disadvantage to doing this.

You can name it .html:
AddHandler server-parsed .html
in your .htaccess file and they'll all be parsed as a server side include.

Having an shtml index page is perfectly acceptable and not uncommon.
When using addhandler, remember to make sure you only try to parse one lang/protocol for each extension. I have seen people try to get ssi and php both parsed for the .html extension, makes one heck of a mess. I use
.shtml // for ssi
.html // for php
.htm // for plain vanilla html

Thanks to everyone! It works great! I feel a little smarter today!
