Comment:
For Time, if HTML5 can handle time zone effectively. For example if there a
web page showing that the football game starts at 6:00pm. One has to
understand, it is not local time. It could be 6:00pm ET (Easter US Time). But
if you are see that page in Central US time zone, it should be 5:00pm.

  The idea, is the web page has "6:00pm ET", but when we see in central
timezone, the browser shows time as "5:00pm Local". HTML5 Standardize it, to
show in local time zone (if needed). That makes date and time friendly.
