: <tip type="Consistent Navigation Trick" author="Rob.Smith">
: Place your entire navigation inside an .inc (include file) and simply call
: it by:
: <!-- #include virtual="/inc/nav.inc" -->
: That way changes are automatically brought across the board. Other ideas
: that can spawn off this are the header to each page, footer, etc.
: My experience dictates that this works in .asp files.

Better would be to create re-usable routines (or classes) to handle this for
you, rather than having inline includes. At a minimum:

<!-- #include virtual="/inc/HTML/WritePage.asp" -->
        <% Call WriteHeader() %>

        <% Call WriteBody() %>
