Parse PHP from within HTML?

Hi experts. I have some html pages that I would like to include a small php snipet that sets a cookie for session id. Everything works fine if I set the file extension to php and use an <include> for the html.
However, I really would prefer to have .html extensions for these pages and not .php.
Is there a way to tell Apache to parse php code within an html page?
I am running Apache 2.0.54 setup on a W2K machine with apache 4.3.11

Yes, you can add a directive (or modify an existing directive) like:

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

However, be aware that all html pages will be scanned by PHP interpreter, so there could be some performance cost to doing this.

Hi and thanks for the reply. I did already try that and everytime I would load the html page my browser would open a box to download the page.
I have tried so many things, including naming the files with shtml so I could use <includes>. Supposedly using this method requires no modification to the server's config file, however it didn't work for me.

I have tried both
AddType application/x-httpd-php .htm .html
and
Addhandler application/x-httpd-php .html .php
but with no luck on either one.
I just can't believe how much trouble I am having getting this to work. Usually I have no trouble at all setting up things on a webserver, but this one is really getting to me.

Are you running PHP as CGI or as a module?

Hadn't thought about that. I believe on this machine it is running under CGI. Will that make a difference in this situation?
