a small question that's been driving me nuts...
both Firefox's “page info” display and the W3C HTML validator
insist a new web page I am putting together does not have any
“modified” attribute/data/whatever. however, the page (which
is HTML4 & CSS2) has, in the <HEAD>...</HEAD> both (plus some
<META HTTP-EQUIV="last-modified" CONTENT="2006-05-26T10:09:31+0200">
<META NAME="modified" CONTENT="2006-05-26T10:09:31+0200">
(I have not checked, but I understand that date syntax is the
ISO8601 format, which the HTML4 Spec. specifically recommends
instead of RFC2616.) the first (HTTP-EQUIV) is based on some
info I did find on the web, and the second (NAME) is based on
what WML (specifically, wml::std::info(1)) generates.
Google™ has not been very illuminating as to what I should be
doing, or as to what Firefox (1.0.8) or the validator expects.
furthermore, pseudo-randomly sampling sites using Firefox did
not find _any_ which has a “modified” whatever-it-is!
does anyone happen to know, or can point me to useful info,
or even to a site which Firefox does think has a “modified”
whatever? (at this point, the issue is more of curiosity
p.s. this is Linux-related in that the new page — which is not
yet online — is being developed on Linux, using wml(1),
and also contains some Linux, FLOSS, and Firefox advocacy.
