Ryan, Try: <!--#include virtual="/cgi-bin/display-messages.cgi?messageType=news&messageID=none" --> I just tested this on a Linux server running Apache -- it worked fine. If the parameters can be passed via the command line, you could also use something like: <!--#exec cmd="/usr/local/apache/cgi-bin/display-messages.cgi news none" --> Also, note the space before the -->. It's important that it be there. Cheers, Kev
