Er, I'm assuming that iq:time is built to get the
server time from the client. Why must the client
be able to respond to the format?

Anyway, Julian, is 3-letter format preferable? And
if so, what about the daylight savings time problem?
Must all server implementations support/know the appropriate
state of DST?

ya, I have no problem with that.  Just saying, the problem with time is its
requested from the client so like you said, if clients don't all respond to
the same format its all messed up. lol

Later,
Simon

"it" being what? some windows clients? :)

It would make more sense if we standardized on using the proper
abbreviations... given that you're not always going to get English.
