You can't get Apache 1.x to treat the file as both SSI and PHP.  Period.

You could just make the first line of each file do whatever magic you do to
include PHP, and then it would be something not unlike:

----------- foo.shtml ----------------------
<!-- #EXEC session.inc --!>
More HTML and SSI here.

I *THINK* if you do this, and have <?php session_start();?> in the
session.inc file, it will work...

I'm assuming there is no output to the browser by the <!-- #EXEC --> bit.

I'm also quite likely not doing SSI right, since I abandoned SSI for PHP
very rapidly.
