I'm working on making my sites more search engine friendly (and wget friendly). I can't find a concise description of how to insititute Last-Modified and ETags. Are they something I put in my templates? Is it something Conversant generates? If so, can I control what it says?

Last-Modified and ETag headers do not go anywhere in the document. They're only a webserver feature, and are sent as parameters of an HTTP connection between two computers. It's totally a programmer issue, not something webmasters ever have to deal with.

ETag headers are generated automatically for every page in Conversant. Last-Modified headers are generated for those pages that track this type of information, but it's all done automatically.
