I have no objection to that.  I assume you mean doing some fancy SSI
variable define, and then using that define to set the <title> and <h1>.
In order to do this, we would need two things:

1. An agreement on what the header.html should look like, and how
it would be called.

2. A volunteer to edit each file by hand to put this in.  My proposal
could have been implemented with a couple lines of perl.  This one
requires touching all the files, and I am not willing to do that myself.
