Hi Pete, 

I was thinking more along the lines of a cgi script as
a general alternative to PHP or SSI.  Unfortunately,
in re-reading my example code, I did not convey that
thought.  A cgi script could insert something in the
middle of an html template and deliver the whole page.

However, cgi does introduce more complexity into a
solution, especially the way I write code, than
apparently does PHP or SSI.  So, in seeing how PHP
could handle your situation, I like that approach
better.  Sorry for the confusion.
