Display Local Date and Time

Question:
JavaScript's date() function gives the user's computer date and time. How do I display my local date and time on my Web page regardless of where the user surfs from?

Answer:
Unfortunately, there is no way to do this with client-side JavaScript. You'll need to do server-side scripting to display the time on the server. This is because any JavaScript code you embed in your HTML page gets executed within the browser, on the user's machine. At that point, the only date and time available to the JavaScript interpreter is the local time.
