    Tool to merge HTML files?

    I've encountered this problem twice in the past few years, and I wonder whether there is a tool to solve it.

    The problem is: how to merge two or more HTML files into one?

    Simply mashing together the <body> tags doesn't work, because the pages may be crosslinked. In the merging process the crosslinked references must become internal references. That is, a tag that starts as <a href="xyz.html#abc"> must be changed to <a href="#abc">. If two or more files use the same identifier one of them must be changed, for examples, from "abc" to "abc-2." And there's a whole series of less common issues to be addressed, such as: if two or more of the files refer to CSS or JS files, how do you decide the merge order?

    I once did this by hand, and it was a horrible experience.

    I could write this tool myself, but I'm not into reinventing the wheel, so if this particular wheel has already been invented, I'd like to find it.

    That does indeed look like what I need. There's no enough detail to tell whether it does the job right, but it's definitely worth checking out.
