Currently, the local_* attributes only read .htm and .html files. It
makes no attempt to emulate server-parsing. So if you have set
XBitHack for your Apache server, there isn't any way htdig will know
that and it will fly right through, ignoring your SSI code.

However, .shtml, .phtml, .php3 files and the like will not be indexed
through the local filesystem, instead going to HTTP.
