Looking for tools or programs

Hi,
I am not very experienced with web development – but I do know some
HTML. I am preparing my personal webpage – and this is going to be
posted on servers that don’t allow dynamic content i.e. no php etc.

Many a time there are a few things that remain the same – on each page
of my website. E.g. the menus on the left for navigation – should always
be the same for each and every page of my website.

My problem is that if I decide to edit such content – I would have to
go in and edit each and every page.

I would like to know if there are any free tools that can help me. I
prefer to type HTML by hand – so I am not looking for something that is
WYSIWYSG.

Regards,
Rio

You need to use a "preprocessor" locally in your home to help you create
the pages you want to go "on line".

A "preprocessor" is to some effect the same thing as a PHP, ASP,
whatever, tool, that you could invoke on your server. Diff is that your
locally run preprocessing agent will give you the "final" page inside
your own home before you have to upload anything at all to your server.

This is the one you need...

....create your pages from "bits and pieces" as you wish.

Thanks Leif and Jan. I never knew of such a thing as a “preprocessor” –
and I never thought of it. This is exactly what I wanted.
