You need to have the file saved with an extension that the server
recognises as one which should be parsed for SSI. On most servers (becuase
most servers are Apache) the default is .shtml. This can be changed, but
you need some level of Admin access (and you can do it in a .htaccess
file if you have permissions).

You would have to consult the company adding the advert. I suspect that
the suggestion was becuase with SSI you only have one page, so the advert,
while still being added to each page, only appears once, becuase there
is only one page being displayed at a time (whereas frames display
multiple pages at once)

Some do. Some don't. RTFM.
