I'm working on a portion of an intranet marketing site. Most of the
pages are straight text, explaining the benefits, general overview and
future developments of our computer system. When I developed this
content, the Corporate standard was to include a "Last updated" date or
"Submitted on" date at the bottom of each page. That standard is being
relaxed now & isn't required. What are your thoughts on including a
"Last updated/Submitted on" date at the bottom of web pages that don't
change very often. Some of the pages are over 2 years old, so I was
thinking old dates don't look very impressive. However, since the
content hasn't changed, there isn't a need to update the date. I can
see some benefits of including a date, but I thought I'd check to see
what your thoughts are.

Thanks for your assistance.
