    I'm re-designing a site right now .. switching from frames to server-side includes. If my file names now have the SHTML extension, rather than HTML .. will it negatively affect my search engine rating (for a site that's been up for 10 years)?

    Simply no. The only thing it may affect is the backlinks that may exist to your site. Is it a Apache server?

    I believe it's an IIS server (I think).

    I said that because if it was Apache, you could set up a .htaccess file to redirect all links that go to "somepage.html" to "somepage.shtml". But if it's IIS you can't do that.
