Here's an edited function, mostly from http://tech.irt.org/articles/js076/index.htm



<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
function getservertime(){
var youroffset = 5; //set this to YOUR gmt offset
var thetime=new Date();
timezoneoffset=thetime.getTimezoneOffset();
timezoneoffset=timezoneoffset * (-1);
thetime.setTime(thetime.getTime()+timezoneoffset*60*1000);
thetime.setTime(thetime.getTime()+youroffset*60*60*1000);
alert(thetime);
}
</script>
</HEAD>
