Ok to use .php and includes for my menu?

or will this hurt my spiderability and search engine rankings?

I am designing a website that calls the menu from an include using php. Is this ok? Or is it best to make the menu static on each page? The site is small so it wouldn't be a big deal to make them static.

'Includes' are just the thing for a menu.

Have to change the menu? Just one file to alter.

The include can be static or dynamically generated.

Thanks, is it best to use .php or .shtml when using includes?
