In your CSS file:

#footer {
text-align: center;
ORIENTATION ATTRIBUTES
}

In the pages:

<p id="footer">
<a href="URL">URL Name</a>
</p>

You can use some Perl, shell script and their relatives to insert the latter
en masse.

Cheers,

Roy

PS - you could also opt for:

<div style="position:absolute; bottom:0; left:0;">
<a href="URL">URL Name</a>
</div>

without using the stylesheet...

I insert the code

<!-- macro Foot -->

and run a static macro expansion. That way I can easily change the
code the macro expands to. You can have a look at the code it
generates, not strictly boilerplate.

look at any of my webpages on http://mindprod.com

<!-- macro Foot noad --> suppresses the Google ad.

Some of the macros, written in Java, are quite elaborate, like the one
that generates links to bookstores where you can buy a recommended
book, or the one that figures out the optimal way to display a code
snippet.

My ISP does not support any server side code. So I have to do all my
cleverness statically before I upload.

It ends up looking much like JSP, except that it is expanded just
before upload rather than when the user asks for a page.

I have an untouch utility that I use to avoid uploading expanded pages
that have not really changed.
