One comment.  If you are using the IBM Original HTTP server I don't think it
has the same capabilities as Apache, as far as parsing through the dynamic
CGI output.  At least I couldn't find it when I was having this same
problem. . .

Hi Everyone,
            I am having a problem with a virtual file include. I am
creating a set of web pages for our own use. These pages will have a set
of menu options on the left side of the screen. These options will all
be the same throughout the pages. So what I have done is created the
menu options as a text file. I use a virtual include like
<!--#include virtual="/customer_service/sidemenu.txt"-->, to copy the
menu html source onto the page. This works great when the include is on
a static web page. Here's the problem, I have a CGI program that writes
a list of item categories. The HTML it uses has the include in it. When
the program runs, it doesn't recognize the include. I think this is
because the source is loaded into the memory and it is not treated as a
standard "static" page. Is there a way around this?
