Hi Jeff,

You can do this already with Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML)
but it involves a small amount of coding to fetch the bits of HTML
from the server.

so one way you could do this is to construct your document with
named <DIV>s containing references to the html you wish to inject
and then write some Ajax JavaScript which iterates these DIVs and
fetches the content from the server.

Server Side Includes allow the server to inject html
from one html file into another.

There are so many image references in html files, that
is, the client has to go back to the server to get the
contents of images many times over, once for each
image. Why not create an include tag that takes an
iref="filename" argument that allows this tag to be
replaced with the included html contents of the file
specified in the include reference argument.

This will simplify footers, headers, and eliminate
repeated code found in many web pages.

What's one more retrieval per page? <img> already does
this for an image. Why not let <include
iref="[rel]url"> do it for html?

Jeff
