   I think that would be fabulous. It would make it very easy to 
implement an organization wide header and footer to pages which the 
webmaster could change at will and affect the whole organization. For 
instance, I want my entire organization to use the same Background and 
link colors on the official pages. So I could have all of them simply put 
a INHTML tag in place of their body tag and have it HREF a common HTML 
file which only contains the organization wide BODY tag.
   How 'bout it. Anyone else like this idea?
