I guess you're not using a white font color :-
1) AddHandler server-parsed shtml
(or html - performance!) or 2 lines must be set
2) for directories with SSI enabled add Options +Include
this seems to be done for the whole Server, but you can do also
<Location /ssi/*.html>
Options +Includes
SetHandler server-parsed
XBitHack full
3) For XBitHack on - the user execute bit on the file must be set and 
for full the user + group exec bit
full is like on, except that Apache sends a Last Modified Header for a 
SSI document what makes proxy caching available
