>>>I know search engines won't index pages generated by cgi scripts, but
>>>will they index pages with server side includes (SSI's) which have
>>>the file extension ".shtml"?

>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
