If you want to have .htm and .html extensions parsed for SSI command in IIS:

Open Internet Services Manager. Find your web site, right mouse click and
select properties. Select the Home Directory Tab, and click the
Configuration button. Under the App Mappings tab, add .html and .htm
extensions with the same executable as the shtml extensions (e.g.
C:\WINNT\System32\inetsrv\ssinc.dll ). Limit the Verbs to GET,POST. Click
OK to save.


Hope that helps.
