In researching the subject of clocks I found very many clock scripts and Applets
starting with this gem that I stumbled across while searching for "clocks"
and this in turn led me to trying to fathom out how Java Applets work



Have patience on the first loading it will take several seconds to download
but when it has clicked into place I feel sure you will agree that it is worth it
you can even see the minute hand move but not see the grass growing!!

Scroll on down for a load of time presentation ideas
Please position your cursor under item 1
You haven't got Java Beta-API support in your W3 client. Get NetScape 2.0 or any other Java Beta-API compatible client. (If you're using lk-hp-*.hut.fi, run 'netscape2' instead of Netscape 1.12/X-Mosaic and try again).

Time presentations
NOTE:-

I think you will find that not all scripts correctly show daylight saving time for some locations in the week
between the clock change from the (Europe) last Sunday in March to the (USA/Canada) first Sunday in April
To be sure check the Summer time link in item 4 below

    also free download of an atomic clock synchronisation program:-
    this program solves the problem of your computer's internal clock not keeping perfect time
    on each boot-up it checks the local time against the US Naval Observatory's atomic clock and resets
    the computer clock if necessary. Or you can "ping" to check at any time
