Just thought I'd add, since the post I found here via Google was outdated, that there is a way to get php parsed in html docs- the .htaccess line that works is this:

AddHandler x-httpd-php5 .php .htm .html

Just be sure that this is exactly what you want; even HTML files that do not contain PHP will still be interpreted as PHP. This will cause your server to work harder than it has to :)

How much harder? If there is no <?php echo "php"?> in the file, surely it has nothing to parse.

True, but it still has to go to the PHP interpreter. If you can eliminate this entirely surely it will be less for the server to do. Especially if the site has a lot of traffic.

sry eelix, no offense intended

though there is an increase, it is not noticable, even on very high traffic sites, in my experience

You are better off using
AddHandler php5-script php htm html

for PHP5. The difference being if you ever implement extensionless uris (as in Apache Content Negotiation [php.net]).
