However, I'm seeking the creation date of my web site (and documents within
it), but I don't know how. If I save the document to my desktop, it is
listed as today's date in Properties.
Is there a way to get the creation date/publish date of a web document

Depending on the server...
You *can* usually get the "last modified" date from a webserver, from the
HTTP headers (many web browsers will show this in the page properties
information box, and there's tools for viewing HTTP headers, as well). If
the server is providing that information, you'll see when the page was last
written to on the server. And if the page hasn't been constently
rewritten, you'll have some indication of the date.
You may have similar luck browsing a website with an FTP client, assuming
that you have FTP access. If so, that's a quick way to list a collection
of files with dates.
