Hi everyone,

I'm running Mathematica 3.0.x on Windoze NT, and would like the *current*
date to appear as

Monday January 17, 2000 (say ... this is today's date)

in my (left) footer.  In the past, the command given to me was

Cell[ TextData[ {ValueBox[ "Date"]}], "Header"]

in the File->Printing Settings->Headers and Footers menu.  This used to
work alright, and output

12/25/99 (say)

for December 25, 1999.  Unfortunately, now it only outputs


Is there a way that I can get the current date to automatically appear as

Monday January 17, 2000 (say)

or, at the least,

Thanks very much!
