What is SHTML?


Question: What is SHTML?

SHTML is really not a "thing" so much as an extention used by Web servers to define a document that has Server Side Includes (SSI). SSI allows you to add real-time interactivity to your Web pages without programs or CGI. The drawback is that it requires that SSI be turned on for the Web server.

You use SSI to do things like add dates and times that change with each page access, database queries that display the results on the page, and displaying different information depending on the browser, DNS or IP, operating system, or other variables.
