Isn't it possible to have the header and footer depend on the browser?  I mean
make header.inc something like (the "preg" call would not some more work on the

  function useTables()
    // returns true if to use tables, false for CSS support
    // make it a function so pages can use it internally as well
    return ((strpos($GLOBALS["HTTP_USER_AGENT"], "Mozilla/4.") > 0) &&
            !preg_match("@MSIE|Konq at i", $GLOBALS["HTTP_USER_AGENT"]));

  if (useTables())

Just a thought,
