I use php to bring in these files. I make a header html doc with the doctype.. head and body tags(I use inline styling, but not necessary), then reduce it to something like this called header.html:Then give it a name and in the pages to come(they are php files) I put:Code:<div style="width:280px;margin:auto;"> <h1>HELLO FOLKS!</h1> </div>
Same for the footer.PHP Code:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xml:lang="en" lang="en" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<?php require ('header.html'); ?>
If you don't care if the rest of the pages loads when there is a problem with the header or footer files, use 'include' instead of 'require' in the php call.
