But not relevant to the question, unless you have hooks in place
(as in SSI).

I'd point the OP at mod_publisher which, unlike mod_layout,
is markup-aware and won't risk breaking a page (and I'm not
sure how reliably mod_layout can find the right place to insert

On the other hand, preprocessing is probably better than any
solution using apache.

If you have an easy-to-find hook (like the byte sequence "</head>")
just run a global edit, e.g. with perl.  I think it's safe to say that if
you can fix it with mod_layout, you can fix it more easily with a
simple perl one-liner.  But I'm willing to be proved wrong:-)
