Django's templating system has an "include" statement, but also 
something you don't have in PHP : an "extends" statement. Yes, template 
inheritance. This means that you can define the general basic layout for 
all your site in one "base" template, and make your other templates just 
fill the "blanks" you defined in the base template.

FWIW, I'm using Django has an example but quite a few other templating 
systems have this "template inheritance" feature one way or another...

And ? Do you really thing we'd all be wasting time using templating 
systems too dumb to do even such a simple thing ???

Perhaps this might better answer your questions:
