But please distinguish between significant changes to the content and

If someone were to correct a spelling mistake in a six-year-old document,
it would be true but misleading to say that it was last edited yesterday.

20011010 - Fixed spelling on line 12, recieve -> receive
19950111 - Original Release
()/)/)()	..ASCII for Onno..
