yes... serving a plain text file to the browser is always faster than 
walking it through a scripting engine... a document made up of 
includes still goes through the scripting engine...

i've found that includes without script get processed more quickly 
than generating a page from script, but it depends how you plan to 
do it...

originally, i didn't know what language/platform you were using, so i 
pulled up a link for doing it in ASP... you don't need it, but it's in 
my copy buffer, so:

Including Files in ASP
