        Set a cookie with the users timezone

//By default, getTimezoneOffset returns the time zone offset in minutes
setCookie("timezone", new Date().getTimezoneOffset()/60);

function setCookie(name, value, expires, path, domain, secure) 
{
    document.cookie= name + "=" + escape(value) +
        ((expires) ? "; expires=" + expires.toGMTString() : "") +
        ((path) ? "; path=" + path : "") +
        ((domain) ? "; domain=" + domain : "") +
        ((secure) ? "; secure" : "");
