Yup. FP includes happen at authoring time, not at run time. This is a pain
for you (I was running an intranet once, using FP includes for common
navigation, and one edit took 45 mins to ripple through the 2000 odd
pages it was on), but means that IIS has static HTML pages on it, with
the associated performance gains for the real users.

Try opening a page with an include with a basic text editor (*not*
FP which hides all this from you) - you'll see the page is prebuilt.

FWIW imagemaps are also hidden from you in a similar way, which
makes producing JS rollovers in image maps kinda fun.
