[nycphp-talk] php include file question

When it is necessary for me to use PHP on an existing site, I add an 
.htaccess file to specify that .htm and .html will be parsed as .php 
files.  Without involving the sysadmin, and assuming that it is an 
Apache server, this is a pretty simple solution, with the negative 
loss of performance when -ever-single-html-page- page is parsed 
whether it contains php or not.

One simple line in .htaccess:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .htm .html

Though I might chime in.
