How to auto insert Date in footer of each page


         I use Mathematica as my primary tech writing tool.  To keep track 
of changes, I would like to insert date automatically at the footer of each 
page, like 3/31/2004, or better, March 31, 2004, whenever I generate a pdf 
file or print a hard copy.  Right now, I am doing this by hand using the 
File>Print Settings>Headers and Footers, and then insert Cell["3/31/2004", 
FontSize->10, ...] in the footer box.  I have to do this every time for 
print or save a pdf file.  Is there a better way of doing this?  Thanks.
