How to include a file into ebay listing HTML?

I am selling products at eBay. Each product listing has the same customer service info. Each time when I update customer service info, I have to go through each listing to update them. This is very time consuming work. So, I am thinking if I can create a standard page, then in my listing, I just include this page into the listing html. Each time I just only need to change this html file, no need to update every listing.

So, I create a html file stored in the server.
http://bid.hollywoodress.com/uplimg/html/customer_service.html

Then, in my listing, I tried the following in the listing html
<!--#include virtual="http://bid.hollywoodress.com/uplimg/html/customer_service.htmll"-->

But not working.

Any suggestion?

If eBay disallows dynamic text (it sounds like they do), then perhaps this could work.  I've never done this myself; it's just an idea:

Create your customer service info text in a text editor, taking care to use the same font, size & color as your existing eBay listings.

Produce a screenshot of this document.  You may need to use an image editor to crop out only the text from the screenshot.  (Some versions of Windows come with a "Snipping Tool" to facilitate this task of taking a cropped screenshot).  Save your image of the customer service info text as "custinfo.jpg", or similar, and upload it to your image host.

Now try replacing the customer service info text in your listings with an img tag that points to the custinfo.jpg file.  Just try this in 1 test listing at first:

<img src="http://myimagehost.com/custinfo.jpg" />

View the listing to ensure everything looks good.

Now, change the text in your document.   Produce a new image and upload it, overwriting the previous one.  Refresh the listing to verify this technique will work.

This is not an ideal solution, but if eBay disallows standard dynamic text via HTML or JavaScript, it could be better than nothing.
