Hey Benny,

Yes - I'm using Apache, and SSI had been enabled. (See my note below
about the includes working on other pages.) However, I just noticed that
the Addhandlers in the configuration file are for .html and .htm extensions,
while the address of the listinfo page has no extension. So, I went to the
page you suggested and then added 

"XBitHack on"

first to a .htaccess file, then to the configuration file. Neither worked.
