AbiWord is not in any way designed to create web pages. The HTML export is
just a helper to allow publishing documents to the web easily. But it is NOT
a substitute to web content publishing tools. Emacs (or vim) is much more
suited for that. And any well designed content for the web would involve
some sort of post-processing, like server side include (PHP or anything
else) or pre-processing of the file before putting online (static content
but with defined layout. You change the layout, you regenerate all the page
from content and layout template).
