Here's the body text. There is no need to add a date. You can copy and paste this directly from Word - but avoid any sexy layout stuff like tables.
There's also no need to append your contact details - remember this is being published directly to the entire planet - effectviely forever. Note: The "Remove posting after..." only works on OUR site - other sites like Google will be archiving everthing. It is not just a press release going only to "the media".
