For U.S. cities or towns (Form A), the output times will be on a 12-hour clock (with "a.m." or "p.m." listed); for worldwide locations (Form B) the output times will be on a 24-hour clock.

Daylight time is implemented only for U.S. cities or towns (Form A) and only for years 1967 and later, in accordance with the Uniform Time Act of 1966 and subsequent legislation. Daylight time is not used for places currently exempt from it.

For worldwide locations (Form B) that require it, the time zone can be entered in hours and a fraction. For example, for locations in India, the time zone may be entered as 5.5 hours east of Greenwich. The time zone field can accommodate up to five characters.
