* What about simply prepending the single word "Page" to the existing 
"Updated <date>"?  Because lacking that, the current dates on the index 
pages really do look like they apply to the whole thing, while "Page 
Updated" is both clear enough and similar enough to the same mechanism as 
I've seen it on other sites, that it should go quite a way toward 
eliminating the confusion.
