Link info outside doc

Here's why I'd like to be able to store the link info outside the
document. I have documents that have a set order (chapters of a
book, chunks of chapters of a book) and that all need NEXT and
PREVIOUS links. In the present HTML, I have to (don't I?) provide
the URLs for the next and previous documents in each document.
This is tedious and prone to error.

I'd like to be able to provide a list of the docs in order, then
in each doc just specify that it should have a NEXT and PREVIOUS
link. Then the browser can refer to the list of files and find
the right URL. If I want to change the order I can reorder the
list of docs, without having to go into every file and change
the URLs.

Is there a way to do this in HTML+ that I have missed?
