The way I sometimes go about making a website is to fully code up the
entire first page with a design I would like.
Menus/headers/footers/layout and all. Then, when I'm happy with it, I
cut it up into componant parts which I then include back in.

This way there is no chance of having repeated tags, and everything is
neatly organised. By the time you've cut it up, your index.php file will
likely have nothing more than a bunch of includes and possibly the text
specific to the index page.

Don't think that each included file needs to work on its own. It doesn't
matter if the included file doesn't open a tag if the page calling it
has opened the tag already (such as <html>). I've had an include that
formed part of a table, with the table created by a different included
file, and closed by yet another.
