It is very easy. Just set up a file on your PC that holds the footer. Then
copy it and paste it into all your files that need that footer. A faster
solution would be to learn the scripting language in your editor and make
it do it for you. You could make the editor search for a specific string
and replace it with the footer. It is kinda like doing the SSI before the
user asks for it.
