Well there isn't, but we can easily create one:

# adds pagevariable {$Time} of format HH:MM:SS, 24 hour clock.
$FmtPV['$Time'] = 'strftime("%H:%M:%S", time() )';

If you want a different format change it inside the strftime function,
see http://uk.php.net/strftime

time() returns the time as a Unix string from the server.
strftime makes it legible for humans.
I used it to set various variables for different date and page
creation date etc in blogsimple.
