My project team is currently working on converting a web application from ASP to ASP.NET.  I am working on creating a data grid that shows a reports subject, start time, ID Number etc.  In a field that shows estimated start time I need a particular data format and in two time zones with a line return.  So far all I have is {0:dd MMM}

example:
Input:
September 10, 2004  9:25AM

Output:
10 Sep    0925
10 Sep    1425

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

here is a function that will do that for you:

 Public Function FormatMyDate(ByVal dt As Date) As String
        Dim myDate As String
        myDate = dt.ToString("R")
        myDate = Trim(Right(myDate, myDate.Length - 4))
        myDate = Trim(Left(myDate, myDate.Length - 7))
        myDate = Replace(myDate, ":", "")
        FormatMyDate = myDate
    End Function

Thanks AerosSaga, the links you gave me got me the correct information:
{0:dd MMM HHmm}C <br> {0:dd MMM HHmm}Z

The time zone stuff will be a function utilizing the ToLocalTime function built into VB
