So far I am concerned, i did edit dm files manually and inserting the html
code using the hard way of cut and paste. But there is no need for all the

So you can have integrated site have content in html and dm files. You can
also think of using the "FRAMES" for displaying normal html files as well
as content generated from dm files in different frame.
