That's pretty cool John, and a great idea (and also the easiest way to 
do this).

The way that you may have been thinking about doing this would be 
through server side includes which works much like the php method noted 
below, you just add a snippet of text into the html and that grabs the 
other header file as well. <!--#include virtual="/header.html" -->

The only caution is that the server needs to be set up to allow server 
side includes (John's method shouldn't need anything like that) and I'm 
not so sure a standard webserver today would have that set.

In other words, you may have been thinking of server side includes, but 
John's suggestion is the way to do it :).
