I once wrote a simple Perl script, that copies a HTML file from stdin to
stdout and replaces all text between too marker lines (included in HTML
comment tags) with the contents of some include file. Since the marker
lines are not removed from the output HTML file, you can run this script
over the same HTML pages over and over again and get some sections

I run this script over my web pages (i.e., the DDP home page) after I did
some changes. As the output is static HTML pages again, this works with
_any_ server and client. (It's the same procedure as if you start your
editor and update the text yourself.)

If you are intrested, I'll send you the script (it's really very easy).
