      Oh, that is really the hard way. You will really enhance your learning

      Only if you use server coding like Server Side Includes (SSI). Many
      servers include this but usually only the ones you pay for. Another
      way is to use dynamic server coding like Active Server Pages (ASP),
      PHP, or Cold Fusion. These are all programs that preprocess your files
      to execute embeded code before sending the page back to the visitor.

      Try searching for further answers using http://www.google.com/. Two
      good sites for further HTML and HTML related information are
