if your calling it in with a SSI include, why not just add:
AddHandler server-parsed .shtml .html
to your .htaccess in that directory.

A different approach: You could make a new index.php file and create a symbolic link index.html pointing to index.php, provided your configuration allows symbolic links to be followed. Or, alternatively, a RewriteRule might help, transforming requests for index.html to index.php.
