It would be feasible to add SHTML support to Tomcat.

What this would take is creating a servlet to do the appropriate parsing and
processing, and map it to the "*.shtml" extension.  You might even be able to
start with the Apache JSSI servlet (at <>) and modify it as
necessary to reflect the changes in the servlet API since 2.0.

However, no one to date has volunteered to add this feature.  If someone wants to,
I'd be happy to integrate it in.  Any takers?
