Re: Cascading Style Sheets

Hello Marge,

What you're asking for is not a function of CSS, it is a function of
SSI.

First, CSS (or Cascading Style Sheets) are just that. Style sheets
and nothing more. They allow you to format the elements that make up
an HTML document with things like font properties and layout. In
other words, CSS is for looks only.

A List Apart: http://www.alistapart.com/ has a very good article on
"Fear of Cascading Style Sheets." You should definitely read it.

I won't go into the technical specs of SSI here. Just to say that
by using SSI you can incorporate your headers and footers into a
separate file that can be called from each individual page. For
more detail, visit the NCSA's page on Server Side Includes.

Good luck!
