Yes, it have. Might even be called a FAQ ... 

So I skip most of your questing. Your proposal is to make this possible:

 J> <HTML SRC="http://glacid.com/cgi-bin/text.pl">

There are two possibilities to do this. Using HTML 4.0 you can do
something like (not exactly sure on the syntax here, but it's in the
spec) :

<OBJECT TYPE="text/html" SRC="foo.html">

If you have a server which handles SSI (server side includes) you can
do this:

<!--#include file="incl-titleaddr.shtml" -->

For a lengthy discussion of the pros and cons of each method, see the
archives of this discussion list.
