Including header files in HTML pages

Including header and footer files in ASP was very easy.

But how do I achieve it in a pure HTML page?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can't.  'pure' HTML does not have a command to do that.  Something other than HTML is always required to do that.

Dave, can you turn on serverside includes?

Otherwise, you could do this in js or jquery. I prefer using jquery..
<script>
$(function() {
$.ajax({
  url: "myHeader.html",
  cache: false
})
  .done(function( html ) {
    $( "#header" ).append( html );
  });
 });
</script>
<div id="header"></div>

Yes but that is still not 'pure' HTML.

HTML inside "includes" need some server side technology way to insert. You can also think of IFRAME way.
