    i used it once to make a bootleg blogger, it'd reload the page within
    the page and i was using absolute positioning on that page...
    it worked out pretty cool

    Bloggers use it a lot. Newbie web designers use it a lot, too, because they don't know about SSI yet

    Do a search, there is plenty of debate on this topic. Mostly to do with iframes being bad (scrolling, bookmarking issues etc.) so SSI comes to the rescue, which puts everything together before the page loads and then presents it as a normal webpage.

    ok well i read some tutorials and i tried it out and it works but i still dont get why i would use it...
    here, for example, take my page: http://www.yun0.net

    i use an iframe for that bit of content in it. so give me a reason/suggestion how/why using ssi would be more suitable for my page?

    You would put in the content of the page then use SSI to include the stuff that is on all the pages (eg. banner, navigation, copyright) from seperate files.

    This can be done a variety of ways, using different web languages. I would recommend seeing what your host supports first then take a look through some of them previous posts. I think there is also a tutorial in the tutorial forum.

    There isn't really a reason that I know of (I am not an expert on the subject) except from reducing storage space on your server and faster loading times due to caching. There are a lot of negatives in using iframes, there are loads listed in previous posts, so it is better to use SSI.
