Even though GMT and UTC are not exactly the same, the differences will not matter to you here. One of these days, all the GMT+x and GMT-x will probably be replaced by UTC+x and UTC-x but for now, you will need something like GMT+5 for your timezone. The exact value depends on your location, and the time you want displayed. Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
