I suggest use Universal Time Coordinate like Default Time for the web ( you
can see an example at the bottom of  http://sitio.de/energia )

For example, imagine you see in a page that there will be meeting in a
certain place, irc server, TV program at a determinated hour ( for example,
15:00 UTC , with this  three letters after the numbers ).

You see the UTC clock and now itīs 12:00 UTC and in your local clock itīs
10:00 .

You know now that the event will happen at 13:00 local time ( this is, 15:00
UTC ).

All the best.
