In designing my website, I came upon the same problem -- after all, a good
interface will have some nice consistencies with navigation and general
info at the tops and bottoms of all pages. Originally I thought I could
be clever and include an HTML file just as you could include a GIF, but
the HTML standards just don't accomodate for this. So what I'm doing (or
will do, once I get around to it) is using floating frames, which kinda
behave like images in that they flow with the text, but they can include
an actual web page (or have to do so, actually). I know, I hate frames as
much as the next guy, and will do everything I can to avoid them, least of
which is because it stuffs up the usefulness of the URLs which the user
gets to see; however these seem to be a much "friendlier" form of frames
As I haven't actually done this yet -- and it's all in my vivid
imagination -- I'm freely open to correction.
