How to format all dates and times into user's default local time zone?

Hello!

I have good idea. I want to style all dates and times within my site into user's default local time zone. So that date and time is correct for user's local time zone.

I know I can use <f:convertDateTime>. But is there any way to format all dates from one place without using <f:convertDateTime>?

Thank you!

Unfortunately, no. And unless the tag explicitly overrides it, the timezone will be UTC.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
