For people who have hand-coded sites (as opposed to a site built using a CMS):
I have a site I built by hand which consists of some 300 + pages.
In the past, whenever my boss decided she wanted a new button in the navigation bar, this meant altering all of the pages by hand.
Obviously that sucked, so I looked for another solution and started manipulating my site using a programming language.
That got me thinking that I can't be the only person with this problem, so I wanted to ask how other people deal with having to alter code in a large amount of html documents.
Personally, I'd use PHP includes. Failing that (assuming no server side scripting was available) I'd use a 'site wide' Regular Expression to alter the section of code instead of faffing with each individual page, e.g. similar to a Find and Replace.
