Is there a way with Apache and .htaccess to run PHP on top of static HTML pages? 99% of my site is currently static, but would like to add some additional text based on referrer domain. Like if the link is from a forum posting, I could write "Thanks for visiting from the widget forum". If this is possible, is there a processing load on the server that the web host might not like?

This in your Apache config should enable PHP on all .html files.

AddType application/x-httpd-php .html

It will have some impact on server performance, since every .html files will have to be parsed. Maybe you can add it just for individual files by using <Files ...> sections.

You will also loose some HTTP headers that the default handler in Apache sets based on the file sent. This is stuff like Last-Modified etc.

So, it should be doable, but it will have a pricetag.

What about a client side JavaScript include on each page to do the same?

PHP runs on the server-side. There can be no interaction with javascript. PHP can generate javascript code, but that is another thing.
