You might be able to do something with navigator.syste mLanguage and/or
navigator.userL anguage - e.g. on my system, both return "en-gb", so you
could logically work out that my PC is set up with British English settings
and go from there...

Request.UserLan guages would come in handy if you want to
detect a browser's Accept Language with a .Net class.

Two warnings :

1. Request.UserLan guages returns an Array
Process it accordingly.

2. The Accept Language may not be the same as the
machine's setting for date and time formats.

I know so, because on my test machine and web server they are not.

However, for 99% ( guesstimate ) of clients out there, they would be.

I am trying to do a homework assignment, but I am having troubles due to regional date settings. Part of the program requires a date to be read from a sequential file, which gives the date in string format. The program needs to convert the string to a date. However, the text file supplied is in US formatting (eg. "07/24/2001" for July 24,2001 but my computer's settings are Canadian (24/07/2001"). Now I know that
