It would be helpful to include the Revision Number and Modification Date on the HTML 5 export when it is shown on the mmap.  Currently when I select show Revision and Modification Date it shows up in the central topic but doesn't display on the central topic when exported as HTML.  This makes it more difficult to identify if a shared version is the current version.

I see your point if you send the HTML5 files as attachment to your audience.

However, If you could send them just the link to your Storage and you save new revisions always to that same place. they will see the latest version.

Other option: If you  use Publish for your audience outside the internal network, they would always see the latest version - if you refresh your publish everytime you change something.

Thanks for the reply.  That is actually exactly what we do (post to a common location with the latest version).  Unfortunately we find that some people will save a copy, or use a screen shot in a presentation.  
In a perfect world all users would access the latest version from the publishing location at all times but it doesn't always work out that way.
Additionally, if our team is working on a new version of the document it could be that we are looking at the new version (unpublished) when talking with someone who is looking at the currently published version, having this metadata readily available could save time.

I think this would be a good idea. More broadly it would also be helpful to have the revision number, modification date and the actual file name available as properties which could be added to the map either as topics or topic properties. You could also approach Nigel at Olympic Limited to see if they could incorporate this in a future version of their MAP add-in.
