htp has been designed to break apart two components required to HTML files: design and content.
The design of your pages is best kept in a template file. This reference has a sample template, and is itself built with template files.
Page content should be held in separate files, each using FILE INCLUDE or TEMPLATE to point to a template file. By using global and project default files and keeping logical groupings of subject matter in separate directories, this dissection of design and content becomes quite natural.
Although htp does not enforce any file naming conventions, I've adopted the following file extensions for my own sanity:
