I made the Tutorial on creating a Digital Flash Clock at Anchor. Part 1
creates a timer and Part 2 converts the timer to a clock that gets it
time from the system clock using JavaScript.

Use this link so you can also get the download files missing at Anchor
in Part 2.

There are also versions of my Flash Clocks that use Analog Displays use
the same basic techniques like my Clock at http://www.FlashTek.com/
which does not use any java applet and is a very robust Clock. I have
seen lots of Java Clocks but none that run well at full screen. Other
Flash Clocks on the Web not
based on my design tend to be inaccurate or stop after a while because
of JavaScript errors. This happens sooner and more often with 3 browsers
than 4.
