I'm sorry, I meant to be more clear --

although include files are great for storing data that will probably not 
change (but are now in a convenient include file in case they have to 
change), I was thinking of making this data updateable from within the 
application.  So that my employer, who does not know a thing about PHP 
or MySQL, can change this information from the "administration" section 
of the site.  Which is why I was thinking of using the database...

... well, I may just keep it in an include file, and if anyone ever 
needs to change the data, I'll explain in the documentation where the 
data should be changed.  Thanks for the tips guys
