Hello,

the method by which the XForms processor gets the timezone info from the user
agent is not specified because it is implementation-defined.

> 
>   This function returns a lexical xsd:date obtained as if by the following  
> rules: the result of now() is converted to a local date based on the user  
> agent time zone information.

>> From this statement it is unclear what kind of indicator the user agent
