Is there a way to use variables on a web page?

I suppose I mean simple text replacements, such as replacing each occurrence
of the expression, say, "title" with "World Encycopaedia of Insects". Or
replacing "date" with the current date.

Would it mean scripting or programming?

I'd appreciate any pointers you can give me.
