local and server dates, timezones

Hi Experts,

We have a web application that intensively uses dates and times. These dates are managed using javascript (client side) and vb.net (server side) then stored in a sqlserver 2008 database.  We would like to store these dates in a ‘standard’ way.  I mean, (1) converting client date to server date or (2) saving dates independently of server or client time zone.  Also, we want the ability to render these dates on the local time zone of the browser.  What is the best and simple way to achieve this?

Thank You,

There won't be one right answer to this question so you'll have to find your own way, ultimately.  That said, we convert client and server times to UTC, and save those along with the timezone offset for each.
