Feedback on:
Timestamping an HTML Document

There is a third option worth noting, programs that allow for "pre-publication includes".

Case in point: CSE's latest HTML Validator has a "template" function that works like SSI, but is done on your production machine prior to publication. A piece of code added to the HTML file and then, prior to publication, it is processed. If the include you specify contains the symbol $"CURRENTDATE" or $"CURRENTTIME" that information is added.
I use it for much more than "last modified", but it certainly works for that too. This is the strongest production machine side implementation of 'includes' (using the editor of your choice) I've seen, and I've been scouring the web for them for some time!

NOTE: Also great for including Javascripts contained in -head- over multiple pages... even DW doesn't do that.
