Executing servlets from HTML

I want to have HTML writers be able to insert a line at the beginning of their code that calls a servlet. I tried setting up JSSI-1.1.2 on my Apache 1.3.20 server but it didn't recognize <SERVLET> tags. I tried using SSI <!--#servlet code="yadayada" --> but Apache didn't recognize that command.
What should I do? Should I use JSP? Or, has anybody successfully installed JSSI? If so, how did you do it?

I believe that is an obsolete usage. JSP has taken over so you might as well switch.

I finally did get JSSI to work. It's not that spectacular but it does allow me to totally separate the Java code from the HTML all the HTML authors have to do is include the line <SERVLET CODE="Authorize"></SERVLET> at the beginning of the file to make sure its viewers have been authorized.
If I were to use JSP, would it allow me to do the same thing?
I agree. Here's the link:
