If your server is already SSI enabled, all that needs to be done to call SSI from any web page is to give the web page a file name extension of .shtml instead of the usual .html or htm. This causes the SSI enabled server to scan the web page looking for comments which are, in fact, commands that tell the server to perform certain tasks before it displays the web page. This process of scanning the page is known as parsing.
The syntax for the comment in the .shtml file is:
This comment tag allows a web page designer to insert comments into the .html or .shtml file without having those comments displayed when the browser serves up the page.
Any <!--#comment --> which includes the
# pound sign is
interpreted by the SSI enabled server as a command rather than as a comment. Since it
is in the form of a comment, it does not get displayed by the browser. Since it has the pound sign it is interpreted as a command and the
results of that command are then displayed by the browser. Commands can vary widely from server to server but the 'echo'
command is one of the most common. "Echo" returns to the .shtml
document the results of the command.
