How to use header and footer without generating the pages (e.g. with ASP) for a CHM help file?

For a long time now I've produced the HTML for my CHM help using ASP.
I then copy the output from the ASP into HTML files.
However, this is very time consuming if I want to make a change to my header or footer.

At the moment I use variables in my header and footer, to supply it page names and links.

How can I do this more easily?

If you place tags identifying your header and footer by id (<span id="MyHeaderContent">) then you can write a script that goes through multiple files, uses getElementByID("MyHeaderContent"), and changes the contents as you wish.
