Please open one or your 4e books too the table of contents. The page on the left has two codes on the bottom left corner left of the wizards logo above the the copyright text. What are these codes and were on the site are they used?
Hey. Those are actually publishing codes. the top one on mine is "620-21736720-001 EN" which indicates that its the english version of the players Handbook. I'm sure the numbers are Wizards' internal cataloging system. The number under that, is the edition of the book. Or printing run. "9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1". the far right digit is the edition. Bought recently, it will be 1st edition. A few months from now, it will end in, say, 2 or 3.

I hope that helps!
Game on!
