| Can't do the latter.
| I'm building a weblog. I need to have the user enter entries for each day. 
| I need for each day to display properly on its own - which means each needs 
| header and footer code.

No it doesn't. You need to seperate content, and structure.

Each day can simply be
<dtml-var standard_html_header>
<dtml-var day_content>
<dtml-var standard_html_footer>

Where day_content is what you have now sans header and footer.

I don't know your structure, but, this is how I would do it knowing that...

| And I need the front page to be created on the fly, 
| consisting of the three latest entries, but, of course, without the header 
| and footer code appearing in the body of the document.

Yep you can get the content...

| It now works as it should, but I want to know if there is a more elegant 
| way of doing what I want to do. No point pointing fellow newbies at 
| something and then have one of the gurus suggest I could have done it much 
| more simply and elegantly.

Yes there is, and then you don't need all that hackery in the header/footer.
