I am cleaning up my code a bit and wanted to simplify something:

I have a dropdown menu that I added to every html page in my website.

Is there a way to have the code in one page? so that I can make one change to it (when needed) instead of changing the same thing for every page. My code for the drop down menu is below:

<link href="../p7_cssexpress/p7exp/p7exp.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
  <script type="text/javascript" src="p7_express/p7exp/p7exp.js"></script>
  <!--[if lte IE 7]>
  #menuwrapper, #p7menubar ul a {height: 1%;}
  a:active {width: auto;}

<body onLoad="p7_ExpMenu()">

<div id="profilebackground1">
<div id="banner">

<div id="menuwrapper">
<ul id="p7menubar">
<li><a href="../name.html">Home</a></li>
<li><a class="trigger" href="#">Profiles</a>
<li><a href="../Profiles/name.Profile.html">Candice</a></li>
<li><a href="../Profiles/name2.Profile.html">Erek</a></li>
<li><a href="../Profiles/Interview.html">Interview</a></li>
 <li><a class="trigger" href="#">Event</a>
<li><a href="../Event/Phase1.html">Phase I</a></li>
<li><a href="../Event/Phase2.html">Phase II</a></li>
<li><a href="../Event/Phase3.html">Phase III</a></li>
<li><a href="../Event/Maps.html">Maps</a></li>
<li><a href="../Event/Preparations.html">Preparations</a></li>
<li><a class="trigger" href="#">Bikes &amp; Equipment</a>

Do you know php?

SSI server side includes for html
PHP a serverside preprocessor
in html the fix is a kludge
not all browsers support iframes
In each html file where the menu is supposed to be

<iframe src='menu.html' frameborder='0'>The menu is in an iframe that your browser does not support, you are stuck on this page forever ha ha ha</iframe>

in the menu.html file

<a href='pagename1.html' target='_top'>page1</a>
<!-- repeated menu for as many as there is all with target='_top' -->

the files should all be properly coded to validate under the schema in use, this is just the clip needed
ssi or php are a single line include on each page
