well i've just found out how easy it is to use ssi's but i dont want to change the files to *.shtml, instead i'm planning on using the XBitHack so that i can contine using *.html.

but in the future i most posible would have plans to database the site with php/mysql. thats one of the reasons on using the XBitHack.

but would there be a problem? could include ssi in a *.php file? and if so, are there any security risks in having the *.php file executable??

thanx fot the advice.
