This has to go in one of the first eight lines of the file

;; Time-stamp: ""

then this (or equivalent code) in your .emacs:

(add-hook 'write-file-hooks 'time-stamp)

I suppose you could copy it programatically anywhere else in the file if you needed to, say at a bookmark. That would have to be done again everytime you saved. What's the usefulness of putting the time stamp at an arbitrary place? A save saves the whole file.
