To an extent it depends on the web site structure, if you have 100
identical pages then you might consider using a template system,
remember you don't need a CMS to use templates. If all 100 pages are
different, then you're stuck where you with html/css/ssi (even a CMS
won't help with that).

If you do consider a template system I'd suggest you stick to php and
read Brian Lozier's classic article about php based template engines:

In the end, if you're building more complicated and larger web sites
you're going to have to chose between tedious hard work doing manual
updates or greater complexity in site construction but less work doing

Or just stick to small sites ;)
