Keywords:  ssi, shtml, parse, footer, embedded
The ability to use dynamic HTML scripts that are stored on our servers, but not downloaded to your client's browser.
A facility for including dynamic information in documents sent to clients, such as current date, the file's last modification date, and the size or last modification of other files.
Allows the server to parse special page commands. As an example if you had a footer you wanted on all your pages that may change from time to time, you can create a text file with the desired footer and place it in your document. On each page you put a simple include to read the file and place it at the bottom of the desired pages.
