Includes in Indexes

This is really a CGI/NCSA httpd question - if this is the wrong list
then please ignore it.

I am trying to use server side Includes to make the output of a script
appear in every directory when a user is browsing the directory tree.

The 'normal' case works: a program in a '.shtml' file is interpreted - but
I would like the program to appear in the README.html file so that it works
in every directory. I have tried creating a README.shtml but that doesn't
work - the program simply does not get interpreted.

I am using NCSA httpd 1.3

Any ideas?

(BTW: Before anyone balks at the idea - it is for a special purpose
application - it is _not_ for a normal Web server.)
