shtml and indexing

is there any reason not to use the file extension .shtml?  One of the hosts I have requires that extension to use include files.  I wanted to ask if this has any impact on indexing!

not at all.  I used .shtml all time and never had any problem with Google.  You can even use .php for dynamic content. However, if you use parameters in your url,  (e.g. memeber.php?id=123&group=sd), it will take a while for Google to index indexed the page unless the page is linked by external pages.
