    Daylight Savings Time

    dweakley
      Using the Date object, I can get the timezone (eg: GMT-4 is current for EDT, EST would return GMT-5). WHat I need help with is determining, from a new Date object, if daylight savings time is currently active.

      From what I've read thus far, for windows, Flash Player 9 automatically handles the DST under the covers, then returns the GMT-4 in a UTC form. That's fine, but I don't see how that hekps me determine if DST is set.

      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Summary: I need a way to determine, from any US Continental location, if the current system date/time has DST applied or not.
