If your want to play safe, you could modify your .htaccess in your main directory (or creat the file if it doesn't exist). Add this:

AddType text/html .html
AddHandler server-parsed .html
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes

It would allow you to run SSI commands in all your .html pages. That way you won't have to use .shtml extension. Thant's what I do on
