The !$page probably happens before the ==, so you are testing !$page (true
or false) being equal to "datetime"...

You may or may not want to use something more like:

  if (!strstr($PHP_SELF, 'datetime')){
    include 'header.php';

I personally, though, would have *three* files.

One, datetime.inc would do the work.
index.htm would include 'datetime.inc'
datetime.htm would also include 'datetime.inc'

I think this will be less confusing to you a year later when you have to
maintain this code.
