Displaying Time and Date stamp

Is there way to display the time and date stamp for the respondent time zone in a free format question?

<tr>
  <td width=200px align="left">Anket tarihi &nbsp; </td>
  <td><input name="AgencyTest_SurveyDate" id="AgencyTest_SurveyDate" type="text" size="50" value =  "[% SystemTime() %]" > </td>
</tr>

Can I simply replace "[% SystemTime() %]" with something else that will populate the time and date stamp?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

JavaScript's Date class provides an easy way to determine the date and time in the respondent's timezone.  Here's a simple example:

<input id="datetime" value=""/>

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
    $('#datetime').val(new Date());
})
</script>


This will use JavaScript's default formatting to layout the date and time.  Rearranging the information to use different formats is possible, though.
