SSI are *text* in a format that can be interpreted by an HTML client.

If php "includes" as output from the server (SSI) anything that cannot be 
parsed as HTML [or as HTML parsable script, js etc] by the client (browser) 
then it will not be "render[ed ...] as desired in the browser????" which 
was the question in this thread.

"Servers" can send anything, invalid text/html from a php script, whatever 
... if the client browser cannot parse|interpret the content it is doomed 
to failure.
