The best way it to ask the client which locale they are in (or want to use). There are ways to get locale info from the client though the request, but none are as reliable as just plain asking.

Here is a typical set of headers from a request and a response.
As you can see, the server sends it's date/time in a header but the browser doesn't send that information.
