I'm in Eastern Time Zone (New York in the list below), which is GMT
-0500.  But when I click on http://xobjex.com/service/date.xsl, it
displays "local" as 

    local stamp="2005-01-04T05:29:13-0800

notice the -0800 at the end.  The time should be 8:29:13 (-0500), but
instead it is being displayed in "local" as 5:29:13.  Is there a problem
in the "local" time computation?

A few months ago, I replied to an inquiry on this list for a means to
obtain a date stamp for use in XSL processing. Having provided a
useful answer, I was asked notify the list should any updates or
changes occur. I am writing with an update:

   * An improved date stamp service is available at: 

This new service provides 'local' (UTC-0800) and GMT (UTC+0000) and
the addition of a query string, a date stamp for UTC-1200 through
UTC+1200. The 'local' date information is replaced with the zone
in the query string. For example:

    * local & UTC - http://xobjex.com/service/date.xsl 
    * New York - http://xobjex.com/service/date.xsl?offset=-0500 
    * Los Angeles - http://xobjex.com/service/date.xsl?offset=-0800 
    * London - http://xobjex.com/service/date.xsl?offset=+0000 
    * Sydney - http://xobjex.com/service/date.xsl?offset=+1100 

Documentation for this and other services is available at:

and as an RSS 2.0 feed at:

The old service remains available at:
