HTML and External Files

My ISP does not allow CGI etc.

Is it possible to get a normal HTML file to load info from a text file or access style database?

If it IS possible (In either way) could you please give an example showing how to do this.

Many thanks

It's not possible using standard HTML, but it is possible using Server-Side Includes, so you should ask your ISP if they do that.

If they do you'll have to include code something like this:

<!--# include foo.txt-->

and you may have to rename your documents .shtml or .shtm. If your ISP doesn't allow this, find another ISP that does!
