I want to include some standard menu navigatiion html in a lot of files on the web site.

I've done this before is asp & it worked.

Now I'm trying  <!--#include file = "" -->. It doesn't work.

I earlier tried menu.html, didn't work either.

Web server is Apache. There is a .htaccess file in the root (not in the directory I'm working in) that has this content:
Options -Indexes
Options +Includes

What's wrong?
