Under Dan's "possible developments" one might also list SUBDOC, generally
thought of as evil---but it models what's desired here (arbitrary inclusion
of anything anywhere).

This is a very frequently asked question.

I hate to beg, but...

would one of the knowledgeable and capable HTML book/intro/tutorial
writers research this issue and submit an answer to the WWW FAQ
maintainer?

Currently, that would be  Thomas Boutell <boutell@netcom.com>

Basically, the options are:

existing technologies:
	server-side includes (see NCSA server doc)
	cpp/m4/text preprocessor of your choice
possible developments:
	<a href="included.html" REL=INCLUDE>...</a>
		(we've got a student implementing this, by the way!
			Hi Alex!)

	Real SGML Entities (tm)
