I want the Quick Launch (left navigation) to always appear on all new Web Part pages that are created  I have tried changing the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\1033\STS\DOCTEMP\SMARTPGS\SPSTD1 thru SPSTD8 to remove the run at server commands.   This is not working.

Here is how you change the entire farm to default the Quick Launch Navigation on Web Part Pages.
1.      On your SharePoint server, go to the 14 hive (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\).  
2.      Navigate to the document templates of the site definition for the sites currently deployed in your SharePoint environment.  In this article, we are referencing the English Team Site definition (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\TEMPLATE\1033\STS\DOCTEMP\).
3.      Open the folder SMARTPGS.  Here there are 8 aspx pages and one htm page.  Notice that the order of the aspx pages, matches the order found in New Web Part Page form in SharePoint.  For example spstd1.aspx maps to the page layout Full Page, Vertical and spstd2.aspx maps to the page layout Header, Left Column, Body and so on.
4.      Open the aspx page you want to always display the Quick Lauch Bar on, in Notepad.exe or VisualStudio 2008.
Search for, and delete the following lines of code -

<SharePoint:UIVersionedContent ID="WebPartPageHideQLStyles" UIVersion="4" runat="server">
  <ContentTemplate>
<style type="text/css">
body #s4-leftpanel {
 display:none;
}
.s4-ca {
 margin-left:0px;
}
</style>
  </ContentTemplate>
 </SharePoint:UIVersionedContent>Save the file.  Repeat step 4 for each Web Part Page layout you want to display the Quick Launch Bar on.
5.      All future created Web Part Pages will now show the Quick Launch Bar.
