DHTML and SHTML aren't new forms of HTML.  DHTML is Dynamic HTML.  still
HTML, just built dynamically with CGI, Scripts, SSI, etc.

SHTML is an HTML page that uses a SSI, whether that SSI is another static
HTML section or HTML created by CGI.  

Both are still HTML.  No new tags or anything to worry about.
