What Time Is It?

Here's the current time in places all over the world. I suppose one could just find out the UTC (Coordinated Universal Time), a/k/a Greenwich Mean Time or Zulu Time, and subtract five for the eastern U.S. Except that Britain is currently on Daylight Saving Time, which started a week before the United States in 2006. Except that DST will start the second weekend in MARCH in the U.S. in 2007.

BTW, Australia went OFF DST the same weekend the US went ON DST this year. Of course, parts of the U.S. (Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the parts of Arizona not controlled by the Navajo) DON'T go to DST. Starting in 2006, all of Indiana is now on DST.

Thus, the web link. Note, that it's Daylight Saving Time, not Savings - it's a common mistake.
