Yes.  Check the TSUBJECTBEG resource.

Although it is pretty dry and somewhat terse, the Page Layout
section of the documentation is place to start when trying to
find out about resources related to controling page appearance.
Unfortunately, the thread index stuff is somewhat complicated
due to the nature of the threads.

Note, to "blank-out" a resource, make sure to at least a single
blank line as the resource value.  Example:



2) I've noticed there are many date resource variables for
use in the web pages, anything from 01/02/98 to the ISO
whateverwhatever official date string. But it would be nice
if there was a date string that said something like "Jan 4, 1998"
which has the advantage of being short, unambiguous to
those of us who can't remember whether month comes first or
day comes first in 02/02/02, oh, and year 2000 compliant!

The *DATEFMT resources can be used customize date appearance.
With v2.3 (its in the alpha release), you even have the ability
of formatting dates on an individual resource variable level.
