Server Side Includes (SSI) are html files that contain a link to a script or an environmental variable that are to be included in the script when it is processed by the server.  Out of curiosity what environmental variables is this referring to?

An environment variable is a value that is generally set on a system-wide or per-user basis. When a program starts, it is given these environment variables.
They usually contain items such as where to look for executable programs ('path'), where the temporary file directory is ('tmp' or 'temp'), what the command prompt/shell prompt should look like ('prompt' in DOS, can't remember the unix/linux equivalent)
