If you included the text file in the page like:

< #include "page address"> [Or whatever the correct directive is]

It should work. It might work without the <PRE> tags, tho.

The way I read the post that described the script was that it would 'make'
the files in the web directory, and sub directories of it. I do not think
that a script that copies a file from a anon ftp dir to the website
directory is a good idea, no matter how much it processes the file. It
would enable anyone with knowledge of it the ability to put ANYTHING on
the server.

I don't think that Roger's script does this.

I think that Roger's script is a good idea, and would probably be worth
looking at. It sounds like it does almost what the one I described does,
except that it can be automated using cron. If it was automated, then
there would be no problems with people having to learn how to use it. They
would just have to understand that they put a file in the directory, run
the command (or wait for cran to do it), and the command will include the
header and footer and some formatting to the file. 

But then again this script I'm writing will enable people without SSI
compatiable servers to mirror and work on the site.

Probably. I don't think a group logon exists on cran, does it?
