In response to Justin Ressler's request for "a simple, but (anal retentive)
efficient way of tracking revisions with users that are not known for their
computer skills", Elna Tymes [mailto:Etymes -at- LTS -dot- com] suggested that: "The
very simplest form of tracking changes is to append a date/time stamp
(usually in the header or footer) that is updated every time the document is
changed. The only problem with this is that the stamp gets changed when you
open the document, and it gets updated when you save the document."
I'm not siure about other doc-processing applications, but the Insert>Date
and Time dialog box in word has an Update automatically checkbox that
controls whether the date upcates every time you print or save the document.
If the Update automatically option is unchecked, the date stamp remains
