if you're going to run on apache you can configure it parse .html files for server side includes. this could be a big overhead though if your site has lots of .html pages that don't use ssi.

I assume you mean SSI as in <!--#INCLUDE virtual="menu.txt"--> and similar, right?

You need to save your pages in .shtml to get them to work. If you're using PHP or ASP you code in the sections you want using those languages instead.

don't think that's true for apache wertington, you can configure apache to parse any file extension for ssi's, not just files with a .shtml extension.

i have lots of .html files with ssi's

You just need to edit the .htaccess file to allow it to read an html file as an shtml file.
