I've been using server-side includes for this item for the last couple years. The feature is built-in to IIS with ASP support, and it acn also be enabled for other OS platforms and servers. For example we also use includes for our Netscape Enterprise server running on Unix. The syntax is done these ways:
In the Unix environment you need to use lowercase attributes and remove the space before the pound sign.
You can not include files on a different server, virtual or physical.
The original file calling the includes must be parsed by the server, so it needs an .asp or .shtml extension to inform the server of scripted material.
