    Linking html files

    I am new to this forum and I have one quesiton for now:
    Is it possible to link several html documents so that one includes the code from an another, similar to the #include command in c? You can do this with css, having many pages refer to a single file but I don't know how, or if this is possible with html code. I would like to be able to modify a single file that contains the code for a menu for example and have that change effect the entire website. If anyone knows how to do this, I would appreciate the help. You can post your responses here or email me at alex.fake@gmail.com

    Thanks,
    Alex

    possibly, I am not familar with how to use the method you showed, but you could possibly have the menu file refer to the content files (if I interpret your code correctly). It would be useful if there is a command that redirects the web browser viewing the site temporarilly to a different file and them returns to where it was, ie. having one html file that is split into parts in diferent files. I will try your suggestion. If you have any more advice I would be happy to hear it.

    Including files with asp and asp.net will work like this
    http://www.w3schools.com/asp/asp_incfiles.asp
    including files with ssi (asp and ssi share the same syntax)
    http://216.147.98.109/support_ssi.html
    including with php
    http://www.webdevfaqs.com/php.php#include

    This is the simplest way to just put remote content within a document. If you do what you wish the way above that will require more code to read the query string and identify what to do, it could mean getting the data from a data base or something.
