If these things are really as cookie-cutter as you suggest, and if
there is no need to create an administration section of the site where
the client can edit these things, and if you can create an appropriate
transformation stylesheet, then this sounds like a good approach.

Otherwise, I would suggest the typical database-centric model with a
template engine like Smarty.
