This confirms my understanding of the command, but it still doesn't
work.  I have a file .../WWW/User/test.txt and I put the following line
in .../WWW/User/Overview.html

<!--#include file="test.txt" -->

and nothing happens when I load http://localhost/User/.  I also tried to
replace the file name with an URL, and got the same result.

Well, here it comes.  I was afraid that my question was too simple to be
seen on the net.
