Can you please provide greater detail? SHTML is simply a server-side include arrangement for HTML. Are you talking about the display of code on screen? How a HTML file is saved? Other options for INCLUDE statements?

I would like to be able to switch between the wysiwyg display and source html display for shtml files that contain include statements. This has been available in OpenOffice. I am now using LibreOffice because it is installed by default with both Ubuntu ans Linux Mint which I use. Being able to edit the html source without having to switch to a text editor is convenient and a time saver. Simple renaming the shtml file to html does not guarantee, proper browser function with includes.

This does appear to be a problem, however it is possibly several related problems. Given a basic file (b.html) that is to be included:

    <p>Here is some text to include.</p>

...and a parent file (a.shtml) that is to include this file:

    <title>page title</title>
<!--#include virtual="b.html" -->

The print view and web view both show the include as a comment. Renaming the parent file from a .shtml to .html extension makes no difference. To confirm, there is also no View > HTML Source menu option under v4.0.3.3, regardless of how the file is named. This is under GNU/Linux.

I could not find a related open bug, so please raise a bug and provide as much information about this new feature as possible. Please post a link to any bugs you file in a comment below using the format "fdo#123456".

Why don't you just rename your shtml files to html?
