Wich echo command? The ssi code that i send to you? Thats was always a test
if the internal ssi handler activatd for *.html or not.

The xbithack can you set in your httpd.conf and a little shell script startet
via cron can made the changes before htdig starts digging. Another way is to
change the umask vor people you can publish html documents.....

I think the hole world is now interessting to see your httpd.conf :)

The ssi handler is configurated via the AddHandler/Addtype directive wich is
setting in your mainserver configfile, virtual host, .htaccess!
It is possible thats all your static parsed thru an external parser like the
cgi php ?
Is htdig runing at the same machine as the webserver you would like to
indexing? When not is there a proxyserver between htdig and the webserver?

Questions over questions...
