Handling Timezones and DST

Hi,

I'm wondering how you guys have designed or implemented time zones and DST in your web application projects? Do you guys give the users the option to use DST - if so, where do you base the DST difference?

Thanks,
Alvin

are drawers on the way out?

Hello distinguished colleagues -

Playing with different ways to display some contextual information
(user profiles), and have been looking into drawers as one of several
options (extended tooltips a la yahoo messenger are another under
consideration).

After poking around a bit, I've been realizing that Apple seems to be
moving away from them despite having originated (or at least
popularized) drawers as a UI element. Applications that used to use
drawers (like Mail) use them no longer...

Anyone have the skinny on these skinny window sidekicks?
