Is there any way we can include the date of the html file automatically??

Also, is it possible to check the date of a file (other than the html itself) and put it into a html??

TIA

If your Server handles "Server Side Includes" (SSI), put a
 <!--#flastmod file="foo.html" -->
in your HTML-Code.
(more info on SSI using Apache Webserver can be found here:

If you like to use JavaScript, you can also use this code for the date of the current HTML-File:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!--
var x= new Date(document.lastModified);
document.writeln(x.toString());
// -->
</SCRIPT>

In fact, the way that you shown can only indicate the date of the current html, but I am actually trying to get the date for a gif file that I am going to display.

True for the Javascript-part. But with SSI:
 <!--#flastmod file="displayed.gif" -->
or
 <!--#flastmod virtual="/pics/displayed.gif" -->

Unfortunately there is not a suitable property in Javascript for images, although there is for document - so call the image as a document. A possible workaround would be along the lines of :

<SCRIPT language="javascript">
      window2=open("Cat.gif","secondWindow","scrollbars=no");
      window.document.write(window2.document.lastModified.toString());
      window.focus();
//      window2.close();
</SCRIPT>

with image Cat.gif in same dir.

This should work with a bit of tweaking - I had to click reload. The focus pulls the interesting window to front. At some point you probably will want the close(), but where it is (on my browser at least) it loses the value.
