Dates on articles

Thursday 4 December 2003This is over 19 years old. Be careful.

D. Keith Robinson says we should attach dates to featured web content. He’s right: it’s one of those simple things that are easy to miss when creating content. Like many complex creations, building a web site can mean overlooking simple things while focusing on the complex. Thanks to Keith’s prompting, I’ve added created and last updated dates to all of my non-blog content. Luckily, I’ve been capturing edit histories in my source XML files, so a change to my XSLT code produced visible date stamps.
