Include another html file/content

lg
My site consists of many htm pages and each has a banner with my address and some
graphic.

Now each html page is something like this:
<html>
blah blah
<div>
my logo
my address
</div>
here comes to rest of the page
blah blah
</html>

So when I want to change my address or logo graphics I have to go through every
html page and make the changes.

What I would like is to a sperate page for the banner/logo:
banner.htm:
<div>
my logo
my address
</div>

and all the html page would have
<html>
blah blah
INCLUDE BANNER.HTM
here comes to rest of the page
blah blah
</html>

Is this possible with html or css? Or in a compatible way?

Not with just HTML or CSS, but yes, it's possible. Take a read through:

Depending on the nature of your header, you could include it all in one
image, and use:

<IMG SRC=/header.gif ALT="Turn on images to see the header">

Truly horrible. The lack of embedding is (IMO) the most glaring omission
from the original HTML specifications.

I agree; the markup is truly horrible. In a civilized country, with enforced
accessibility laws, the author should get sued and punished.

By the way, the "innocent" omission of quotation marks from the SRC
attribute value makes validators very "confused" and makes them throw quite
bizarre error messages at you (Google for "the saga of slashed validators"
if you need to know more).
The lack of embedding is (IMO) the most glaring
omission from the original HTML specifications.
They thought that inclusion isn't really an HTML matter, and there's a point
in such thinking. But later "they" added frames, which allow inclusion, and
we all know where _that_ took "us" (well, just the misled authors).

Inclusion as a hypertext feature, even as a special case of a more general
concept like "transclusi on", might be a good idea - if someone ever bothered
to _design_ and define it properly (and browsers implemented it). But to
return to our current universe, inclusion should almost always be handled
using tools outside HTML, such as authoring tools, preprocessors, or perhaps
as server-side includes (SSI and relatives).

Then I'm lucky that I live in a country that prefers to prosecute the
victims rather than the criminals! :-)

Putting quotes around url's that don't require(*) them serves no purpose
in my universe, and wastes disk space and bandwidth. Each pair of "'s
waste 0.4mS of my life when I'm connected via my 44Kbps modem (as
happened recently when my ADSL fails).

either myself or any of my users.

You might be more correct than you think.
Putting quotes around url's that don't require(*) them serves no
purpose in my universe, and wastes disk space and bandwidth.
So you waste everyone's time explaining that you save bandwidth by omitting
some required quotation marks.

A simple way to accomplish this is by use of PHP (assuming your web
server supports PHP).

Simply place the following in your html page where you want the included
code for your banner/logo to appear:

<?php include("banner .htm"); ?>

and change the suffix of your html main page from .htm to .php.

You can specify multiple PHP includes as desired. For example, I use
this method for my top level navigation bar as well as a second one for
my common footer area.

It's sufficient to just specify the banner.htm file name if all of your
pages and the banner.htm file exist in the same directory. If they
don't, use an absolute URL description to the banner.htm file. Also use
an absolute URL if you've specified a <basetag in your html file as
this value isn't passed to the PHP pre-processor.

HTH...

Why use PHP rather than SSI?
