Unless it is somewhere in the article or you can contact the publisher I don't think there is any other way.

Easy, that is IF you believe the date it says it was <VBG>

Actually, it is very hard to do sometimes, EVEN if there is a listed date. No matter what you see, anything can be changed. Even if you can FTP to site and see dates on the site they might have been changed.

Other thing to try is VIEW the SOURCE, the date could be buried in there.... but it it isn't HTML, that probably might not work unless the HTML that displays it has a date.

Uhh, have you tried contacting the web site and asking?

You are welcome, new products out all the time. Pillows are a topic in my house, I ruin all of them. Look like footballs when I am done with them:) Wife laughing as I type.

Last pillows we got were Cannon, can't remember the exact wording but non smashable. Or something to that effect. Still have them not too bad. If I had the money I would buy the overstuffed down.

Well if the article is written and submitted by you only then you can login into your author account on that site and can check the publication date from there.
