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 be either a data string or the contents of a file. Dream-weaver's capability to handle many types of code without mangling it is exemplary and it won't mess with your server-side includes. Even nicer is the fact that Dreamweaver can actually simulate the processing of some server directives.

In this hour, you will explore how to use Dreamweaver to include other files in your Web page. However, server-side includes can also insert information that Dreamweaver won't be able to display. You might want to include instances of the many types of server-side includes in your Web pages.
