importing html objects

hi, i am working on an xhtml page that is becoming very table
intensive for just normal mark-up. I have pages and pages of tables
and rows and it has gotten quite massive. I can break it into
multiple tables to be easier to use, but even at that, it just adds an
extra element set and another tab key to hit.

I was wondering if there were anyway (without using frames, ugh) to
write the tables in seperate files (easier to maintain just a file
dealing with the nav bar then the code in the main page) and then
import it?

I have been looking, and from my own experience, seems not possible,
but figured I would ask. thanks for the help

Yes. You can use SSI, PHP, ASP, or one of several dozen other acronyms;
see <http://www.allmyfaqs.com/faq.pl?Include_one_file_in_another>.

But you shouldn't be using tables for layout in the first place. They're
difficult to maintain (as you've noticed), less accessible than some
alternatives, less flexible, and structurally incorrect. An alternative
is CSS, which has far less shortcomings than layout tables; see
<http://www.allmyfaqs.com/faq.pl?Tableless_layouts>.
