First, to create a templated site, you will need server side support (php, cgi, etc)

Unless you're sites are on a server which is your own (like in your house or something), then you can't set up an ftp server on your host

An eml file is an Outlook Express E-mail

It's also one of the forms nimda occurs in. If you are running IIS and there's where you see it. readme.eml is usual IIRC.

If I Recall Correctly :D

Anyway, if you have .eml files and don't know where they came from it's cleanup time.

WYSIWYG editors like DreamWeaver often offer the possibility to create a template and create pages based on it. In this case, the tool itself takes care of maintaining the parts that belong to the template rather then using server side scripting.
I have some experience with using a template in DW, and must say it works pretty well.
By the way: what number of pages will your site comprise? If it's a one figure number, i doubt the amount of work making updates will be so big that setting up some sort of template mechanism is worth the hassle.

My opinion. Design your own templates. All you have to do is make the basic look for your page and put in basic stuff. Basic stuff like colums and boxes and links set up but not active with little notes on each one telling link here and for a button button here. etc

wysiwyg's are okay ( not really ).
i have heard about that template DW thing, surely not as effecient as server side includes, considering it would be your own coding it would also be easier to edit.
