SSI is Server Side Includes and allows in this case would allow you to

include another HTML page(s) (for example a header, footer or navbar)

on an existing page, giving you a frames like apperance with a single

page. Most web servers support it, so you'll need to refer to your ISP

to see if they do.

Appache does support SSI.  The configuration file would need to be

configured if it isn't already.  The basic SSI command is the include and

what you're after here.



Example:

<!--#include virtual="/path/to/file.ext"-->



This would be put in the html code in the location that you want to insert

the content of that file.  The virtual means that it is relative to the

doc root.  Many ISPs also configure their servers to require all file

using SSI to have the .shtml extention.



If you are the admin and need to configure your Apache, let me know and I

can help you.
