The only way I know to do "browser local time" is to have users who  
log in store data on the system that is their time zone (EST or -5  
for me in New York), then to figure out what time your server is on,  
or start with UTC (essentially GMT without daylight savings time),  
and perform a calculation.

In other words, while possible, there's no automated way to figure  
out what "browser local time" is to do everything behind the user's  
back.  You need them to tell you what their time is first.

Beyond that, a custom function on the PmWiki side could calculate the  
browser local time.
