There are a few ways to do this, but I use

include '../metastuff.php';

include 'http://www.mysite.com/include/header.php';
html stuff
include 'http://www.mysite.com/include/footer.php';
oh, and if the files to be included are php files like shown above, be sure that the content in those included files are also contained in php tags otherwise it will be read as html.

Or if your pages are of the .shtml extension, you would use SSI to include external files:

<!--#include file="external.htm"-->

<!--#include virtual="/external.htm"-->

The above will also work for ASP.

With Smarty, it's:
{include file='/external.tpl'}Django:
{&#37; include '/external.tpl' %}It really does depend on what you're using to write your site.
