By the Last-Modified: header sent by the server. If a date exists in the
datbase, htdig will send an If-Modified-Since: header which will receive a
specific HTTP response if the document is not changed.
Alternatively, the modification_time_is_now attribute sets the date to the
current time if none is returned from the server.

Sure. Use an external parser:
