Thank you Bob for your efforts.
I took all the .css files and added the header and footer you suggested.
There was only a very minor difference between the original css files
and what appeared in the browser after your header and footer were added.
Afterwards I studied the various files and subfiles and found that the
wierdo html files had the subfiles missing and I have no idea how that
could have happened. Those files are about 18 months old and I
remembered that I had backed them up to an external HD, very
fortunately. Since then I copied them over and replaced the defective
ones. The little joys of backups! :-)
Thanks again and have a great weekend
