CGI Programming on the World Wide WebBy Shishir Gundavaram
1st Edition March 1996
This book is out of print, but it has been made available online through the O'Reilly Open Books Project.
There are two common errors that you can make when using Server Side Includes. First, you should not forget the "#" sign:
Second, do not add extra spaces between the "-" sign and the "#" character:
<!-- #echo var="REMOTE_USER"-->
If you make either of these two mistakes, the server will not give you an error; rather it will treat the whole expression as an HTML comment.
