I used includes to insert navigation and footers.

<!-- Start Header Nav -->
<?php include("../path/to/files/hdr-nav.inc") ?>
<!-- End Header Nav -->

You can include the entire header section if you'd like.  The "hdr-nav.inc"
is a simple unordered list that gets styled

I'm just getting into PHP, but that is how I've done it in the past.
