This is a simple ( maybe ? ) question and I am rather brain dead at the moment. Does anyone know an easy to use html code for timezones comparisons.
I need to be able to display my shop hours EST Australia for visitors from any other time zone.
I am not too tech savvy but can use an html editor but not write code.
Thanks in advance and I jope this is in the right thread.

Regular EST (Eastern Standard Time)= Michigan, New York, etc. So you'll need to specify which Eastern you mean, or people will get confused.
But putting Australia EST (or whatever the full designation is) after the time should be good enough. All the places I can think of either just put their timezone after the time, or put that and how it relates to GMT time. (As in [currently in Michigan] it's 2:34AM EDT, GMT -4). EDT being Eastern Daylight Time.
Although I think it's kind of rare and geeky to have memorized the timezone in relation to GMT, it may be of some help to regular people if someone actually cares enough to look it up. I only bothered learning that stuff because some softwares have the user put in their timezone as relative to GMT.

Thanks for everyone's replies
I do list my opening hours as GMT+10 hours
and my time in Australian Eastern Standard Time as well
I am just trying to make things as easy as possible for customers and thought perhaps Australian Eastern Standard time may confuse some international customers as in Leader's Post
Eastern Standard time = Michigan etc. which is US Eastern Standard time
We have 3 ( and at some times of the year 4) time zones in Australia which is why I need to specify time zone for Australian customers, let alone international customers.
