Can java/Javascript read the enduser's PC timezone ?

Guys ,

Can javascript/Java read the user's (end user who visits your web application) PC timezone. (for e.g. "America/Newyork" or abbrevations like "EST"  , "MUT")

I tried with getTimezoneOffset() but that only gives an offset component .

Thanks,
Ajay.

No - you need to call that on the client and have it sent to the server

This will work on Date object on server m/c . I require timezone information on client m/c.

If its on a web application and you are running this on the browser, you need to use Javascript, not Java. Better to ask on the Javascript TA.
