As I know, you can even include dynamically every kind of stuff in a normal 
JSP, if the Apache or whatever shall handle that included stuff is properly 
configured to handle such stuff. Because this include is not an include of 
sourcecode but of the output of that resource at runtime.
Don't know exactly if this is possible with OpenCms because of the JSP 
handling servlet and you have to use the OpenCms API for includes...

Kind regards, Bernd
