Shouldn't be 'page' because in many cases the item last modified is not 
necessarily stand-alone. I would just say 'last-modified'.

Also, looking at the various systems of designating dates online, a 
plain format such as '20050102' and '2 Jan 2005' is definitely 
non-standard. Minimally, I would recommend adoption of the W3C's 
recommendation: http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-datetime See also ISO 8601
