NowI'm not the expert on this, but from what I have read, a file with the
extension .SHTML means it utilizes Server-Side Includes (SSI) which enables a
web developer to insert HTML (by using an SSI command) across a whole website
by changing just a single file, which the embedded SSI command calls for.

As for how to use SSI, I have no idea.

If I'm wrong, sorry.
