One extension to HTML that I think would be very usefule would be a
generalisation of the <img src="URL"> markup. Ideally I would like a markup
which would allow the inclusion of any file type e.g. <include src="URL">.

This would allow html documents to include (rather than link to) other
documents. An example of where this would be useful is where there are large
amounts of frequently used text such as standard disclaimers that need to be
included in all the documents available at a server. It would greatly
simplify the maintenance of documents sholud the standard text need to change
at some point.

What sort of problems would the inclusion of an HTML document within another
HTML document present to viewers?
