@ThorbjørnRavnAndersen: Touché, but if the page works (as in, human readabele) why would I add fancy elements like time?

@ThorbjørnRavnAndersen: Really? I'm writing a website for people to read, not computers. I want people to read my content, and eventually come to my store or whatever (speaking from a client perspective here)
