I guess what you need is to have a clock on your page which would keep continuously updating the time.

If this is the case you may need to look at using Javascript + dynamic html.
(PHP is a server side code, so once page is rendered there's not much you can do)

Look at the Javascript setTimeout() function.
Using it, you can call your own function every N seconds. Your function may do something like this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.myForm.mySpan.innerHTML = <current_time>;
For getting current date/time look at the Javascript Date object and its functions.
If you need more help with this you better off posting your question to the Javascript Forum.

Look at the Javascript setTimeout() function.
Sorry, in this case setInterval() would serve you better, it won't require a reset.
