This is a very frequently asked question.

I hate to beg, but...

would one of the knowledgeable and capable HTML book/intro/tutorial
writers research this issue and submit an answer to the WWW FAQ

Currently, that would be Thomas Boutell <>

Basically, the options are:

existing technologies:
server-side includes (see NCSA server doc)
cpp/m4/text preprocessor of your choice
possible developments:
<a href="included.html" REL=INCLUDE>...</a>
(we've got a student implementing this, by the way!
