Last thing, but this may be the most useful so listen carefully. Just by looking at your site, I am just guessing that you aren't that familiar with CGI or PERL. SHTML should be more familiar to you.
What you should do is make a header.html and a footer.html file.
-Copy and Paste your current header, and save it as header.html
-Copy and Paste your current footer (which you need to redesign as suggested above), and save it as footer.html
-make both of those files easy to get to on the server.
-open up your index.html file
-select your header and delete it, replace your deleted header with this "<!--#include file="header.html" -->" no quotes. Do the same with the footer, but replace with "<!--#include file="footer.html" -->" again no quotes.
-save your index.html file as index.shtml (to intilize your new server side include tags)
-FTP all three of those files to the internet (put them all in the same folder. If you want your header and footer paths in a different folder, then point to the new location on the server. IE: <!--#include file="newfolder/header.html" -->)
-Repeat those steps for all of your other pages.
By using this process, when you update your header and footer then you do not have to update every page on your site, just your header.html and footer.html files.
