Time has to be entered as hours minutes seconds in 24-hour format. The script tries its best to understand various inputs, so 8 is OK, 08:00:00 works, 8h 3m 16s works, etcetera.
Zone time can be chosen from a menu or typed into the input field. Zones east of the 0-meridian have a positive value, west negative.
DST offset can be chosen from the radio buttons or typed into the input field. Usually winter time / standard time has an offset of 0, summer time / DST an offset of 1.
Please note that on calculation only the values in the input fields are used, not the settings of the menus or radio buttons.
What is "the other way around time?"
Suppose you want to contact another person at his local time 10 o'clock. What is my time then? Enter 10 as 'my time' and set the correct time zone information. After calculation 'His time' is his local time when it is 10h over here. The 'other way around' time shows on what time over here it will be 10h over there.
