you can test this behaviour for yourself at the phpMyAdmin site demo:


each of the demos will give you a different date.

Safari shouldn't be using the headers, surely?  a file downloaded today is
modified today...

and these files are created at the point of download, so it's even more
important not to use the http date?

(I'm not sure exactly how phpMyAdmin affects it to be honest, I was surmising
the date creation, but it does appear to create a header that isn't *now*)

all that said, should the browser be setting file modified dates at all? 
surely it should be left to the OS to decide what date the file was modified?
