Hour 22. Use Server-Side Includes and Ad... > What is a Server-Side Include?

What is a Server-Side Include?

A server-side include (SSI) enables the server to place external data into your Web page. The data placed in the page can either be a data string or the contents of a file. Dreamweaver's ability to handle many types of code without mangling it is exemplary and it won't mess with your server-side includes. But, even nicer, Dreamweaver can actually simulate the processing of some of these server directives.

In this hour we will explore how to use Dreamweaver to include other files in your Web page. But there are other things server-side includes can do that Dreamweaver won't be able to display. You might want to add some of these things to your Web pages too.
