You know, that's a thought that should have hit me square up side the head
a lot sooner than it just did. If a part (any part) of the page is being
created dynamically, then the modified date would *have* to be today. Right?

I haven't seen the 1970 date in either Netscape or IE, either when viewing
it directly on my machine, or from the server I was putting the demo on.

I have to do a bit more experimenting myself with this whole thing, but
have put it off to get other things done. Sometimes web work can be
overwhelming when you find *too* much of it to do... <happy frown>
