How to detect a users date/time locale in PHP?

Is it possible to detect a users locale in PHP so that I can display a date in their country format.  

i.e. if a user from the US visits the site they see the date in mm/dd/yyyy format, and if someone from the UK visits the site then they see it in dd/mm/yyyy.  

ASP.Net does this automatically, I'm wondering if it is possible to do it in PHP (by reading their browser settings, not loooking up their IP addres).

Hi DelphiMan7,

You cannot detect user timezone using php, but javascript can do this for you. You can also use combination of both where javascript will pass locale information to server.

I managed to do it using HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE parsing the 2 letter ISO country code.  

Thanks for the suggestions anyway.
