Preprocessing in HTML

There is no conditioning in the html language is there ???

We wrote the online help system for two products in html.
95% of the code is the same for both products. The only
difference is in mentioning the product name ....

I am thinking of using "CPP" or "m4" macros to distinguish
betwen the products. So when compiling the code against one
product, the help will appear to be for that product only.

Is that a sound approach ?? Any plans for HTML to do so ??


#ifdef PRODUCT1
#include "file1.html"
#include "file2.html
