Updating from one main page and having that change reflect in other pages

Hi all.

I am trying to work on the following:

I want a main page which will contain policies, and then have each policy also have it's own html page. So that if I make a change to the main page those changes will also be reflected in that corresponding policies html page.

Example:

MAIN PAGE:

Policy 1 - No eating

Policy 2 - No sleeping

Policy 3 - No driving



HTML PAGE 1:

Policy 1 - No eating

HTML PAGE 2:

Policy 2 - No sleeping

HTML PAGE 3:

Policy 3 - No driving



So, if i change Policy 1 in the MAIN PAGE that change will also be reflected in HTML PAGE 1. Any ideas?

you could use include files for both the main page and the child pages, so that you merely change the include file and this is reflected in both places.

it wouldn't be as easy as a simple wizard, and you would need to use a server-side language such as asp, but this is a very common task in web design and can be done with a little work.

Thanks. What is the technical term for what I want to do?

Well, you are describing a content management system - away to set up the frame of the site and manipulate the content.  Very common in web design - often done the way I describe.  I have several sites designed this way.

Is there any site or links I can go to, to learn how to implement this. Somewhere where I can see sample codes and examples?
