Are you referring to the Date: header field?

"All HTTP date/time stamps MUST be represented in Greenwich Mean Time 
(GMT), without exception. For the purposes of HTTP, GMT is exactly equal 
to UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). This is indicated in the first two 
formats by the inclusion of "GMT" as the three-letter abbreviation for 
time zone, and MUST be assumed when reading the asctime format." --
