I use a PHP include statement in my index pages, that is put there by 
my indexmaker calls....

indexmaker --title="IWR Server Stats" --columns=2 \
  --pagetop="<?PHP include('iwrhead.inc'); ?><br>Generated: `date`" \
  --width=500 \
  iwrbsd.cfg > /usr/local/www/data/mrtg/index.html

the 'iwrhead.inc' file is actually php that auto indexes all the 
other indexXXXX.html files in the current folder.

ok, seems that is not what you want, but it is a possible solution 
for some of the files anyway.
