There are 2 "last updated" time values, since technically you could consider a page compilation as an update, and depending on the options of your server, this could be much more recent than the source mod. Your best best is probably to either use a smart editor or (and/or) a version control system. Most vcs's have some sort of ability to macro-expand certain variables such as the checkin timestamp.
Sometimes the only way things ever got fixed is because people became uncomfortable.
This works.. (But as Tim mentioned, it picks up the last compilation time, and not the source file timestamp -- but this will be the case for the taglibs as well). ------------------ Miftah Khan - Sun Certified Programmer for the Java� 2 Platform - Sun Certified Web Component Developer for the Java� 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition
