There will be one HTML template, with only one placeholder. This template will be used to populate a number of HTML files. There will be a number of text files. The text files will be labeled like english-082605.txt and spanish-082505.txt. So that there will be an identifier listed first (english) and then a date 082605. There will be a number of days worth of files. Each file contains only one word. (a hex value, say "FFFFFF")

I would like to use the template to generate a html file for each identifier. (english, spanish, etc.) I would like for each file (english.html) to have it's one placeholder to be replaced with a cronological list, generated by the files. Each file haveing an entry like "FFFFFF 082605". I was thinking of using a snippet for the formating of each enty. The snippet would be all the html to make it look just right, but have a place holder for the value (FFFFFF) and the date (082605)

I can change the naming scheme if that makes it easier to accomplish. (for instance, if english-08-26-05.txt would be better, just let me know)

This question is asking a lot, so if you want more info or anything else, please let me know.

Example files listed below:

english-082605.txt:
FFFFFF

english-082505.txt:
EEEEEE

spanish-082605.txt:
FFFFFF

spanish-082505.txt:
EEEEEE

Snippet:
<b>%date%:</b> %result% <br>

Template:
<html>
<body>
%placeholder%
</body>
</html>
