Smart headers and footers using ASP.NET User Controls

<Quote>We can still use include files in ASP.NET in pretty much the same way as classic ASP if we want to. However, User Controls offer greater flexibility, reliability and speed. We'll see this as we create a header User Control for this site.</Quote>

the answer i was looking for was this:

 <!-- #Include file="inc/includeFile.inc" -->

All I was trying to say is that, while you got the answer you were looking for, there is so much more power to user controls vs. include files.  But, it's your life and your decision.
