We just got a new client who has literally hundreds of websites. Each website will need to be integrated into third party applications such as blog and forum software.

We have to place a cosmetic header/footer into each third party application for each unique website.

We are dreading having to copy and paste header/footers manually.

Does anyone know of a browser based software application that will auto-fetch a header and footer from each target site? or maybe a browser based app that lets us "flag out" the body text content leaving only the header and footer behind which could then be copy/pasted out and into the third party app?

Any suggestions appreciated.
