Replace parts of a file?

Here's a newbie question. I'm working with a script for replacing the
header and footer sections of multiple HTML files. I don't think I can use
SSI here, as I need to change some file paths in these sections too.
For example, the footer (in this case) is everything below the last "<hr>".
Below that line, different files may look a slightly different. After the
"<hr>", I want to remove everything and replace it with a standardized
footer from another file. I came this far:
file = open(filename, "r+")
start = string.rfind(file, "<hr>")
I've been looking for a function that return a substring based on a start
and end value, but hasn't found any. Maybe there's a better way?
