You may be right that for now it's easier to just replace the content
than to implement SSIs. But what about the next time a change needs to
be made? If you invest the extra time to convert to SSI now, such
changes in the future will require nothing more than updating the
appropriate include file. Trust me, you'll thank yourself for it later :)
