Why not go ahead and work on content while the design 
gestates in the back of your mind?  If you use SSI - or 
something better like PHP - you can leave site design for 
the last minute, and change all the files at once.

Just make every file look like this:

<!--#include virtual="/tmpl/file1.shtml" -->
stick metas here
<!--#include virtual="/tmpl/file2.shtml" -->
title here
<!--#include virtual="/tmpl/file3.shtml" -->
<!--#include virtual="/tmpl/file4.shtml" -->
<!--#include virtual="/tmpl/file5.shtml" -->
