Cannot Use JavaScript to Get Server Date

Question:
How do I get the server date using JavaScript that is embedded in an HTML file?

Answer:
You can use server-side code (like Perl, ASP, and so forth) to embed the date on the server within your HTML file, but you can't get the server's date using client-side JavaScript. This is because JavaScript that's included in an HTML page runs on the user's machine and can only get the date their computer is set to (versus the server's date).
