Server-side includes (SSI) tell a server to include information in a document before sending it to the browser. All directives to the server are formatted as SGML comments within the document.

Thus I am extremely lucky to be allowed to write about SOAP, one of the punniest technologies to come along since Unix. And it’s true:I feel lucky. So everybody scrub up, and let’s get started.
