Reading coldfusion in .html files

I am on a Windows server with coldfusion mx 7 and apache.

I know this is possible by somehow tuning my server settings, but am very rusty since I haven't touched coldfusion in over a year.

I want to be able to read coldfusion language within .html files. Basically, being able to run coldfusion with a file saved as .html.

What exactly do I have to configure to be able to do that?

Are you wanting to execute CF code in the HTML page?

You could read the HTML file, write it to a temp CFM file and then run it.

<cffile action="read" file="#absolute_server_path#/#your_HTML_file#" variable="TempRead">
<cflock timeout="500">
<cffile action="WRITE" file="#absolute_server_path#/temp.cfm" output="#TempRead#">
</cflock>
<cflocation url="temp.cfm">
