Well, I am surprised that such a basic feature is missing from the
specifications of XHTML 1.0 or HTML 4.01. The possibility to include the same
piece of code in several pages from the same source file is, in my personal
opinion, a real must. Is it possible to propose a new tag for future versions?
For example

     SRC=url             -- source file from which code should be included
                         -- it should not contain neither <!DOCTYPE> nor <HTML>
                         -- but just a flat piece of well-formed HTML code
     PARSE=[yes|no]      -- parse internal entities too after inclusion
     INTERLACE=[yes|no]  -- if yes, load in parallel with rest of page,
otherwise after
