I see that the Web Development sub-forum does not get
much traffic. If there is a better place to ask HTML, CSS,
and Javascript questions, please let me know.

This is a very simple question, and doesn't affect how
anything works -- just a matter of standard practice.

The HTML meta tag can have a content of "author". What
about the date the page was created or the date it was last
updated? I don't see a standard place to put that info.

More seriously, wherever you think it looks good. HTML doesn't define any tags, nor are there any defacto standards that I know about. HTTP does have a Last-Modified header, but the web server gets that from the data source's metadata (file's modified date), and it's more for page caching. You're free to add the info to a meta name tag, but you're probably not going to find anything that references it.
