PS: thanks ppk for your infos on javascript security issues.. I am not too
happy with that but I suppose it is for the good of the web, otherwise we
could go into trouble while surfing porn sites.. :-)

with apache, you can either go into the configuration files httpd.conf and
srm.conf (for this particular thing, it will be httpd.conf) or even simpler:
create a file called .htaccess at the root of one of your directory you want
the change to happen and write:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .html

and all .html files will be interpreted as php

it goes the same with all file extensions, you just have to mess around.
Unfortunately I don't know the initial line for coldfusion, but here's a
fake exemple:
AddType application/x-httpd-coldfusion .cfm .html
