Server-side includes

Is anything possible?

Can I put just about anything in an ssi file?
for example, can I put a table in there so that all I have on the actual page would be something like
<!--#include virtual="/ssi/table.html" -->
and on the server, saved as "table.html" is the actual table html that has an actual link to our logo in it?

Sure you can. Someone correct me if I am wrong but I think this page is generated by a SSI call, although calling a cgi script.

Of course the more you use SSI and the larger the file you are calling the more resources are being used by your server.

Sure, I've seen pages that in their entirety consisted of something like this:

<!--#include virtual="/header.html" -->
<!--#include virtual="/content.html" -->
<!--#include virtual="/footer.html" -->

In fact, I've created pages like that.

Sure you can. You can even use SSI to include parts of tables in various locations on the page if the includes complete a table.
