var oSelectedTimeZone = System.Time.currentTimeZone;

// Set the time zone details.
var sTimeZoneDetails = function() 
{
    var sDetails = "";
    sDetails += "Bias: " + oSelectedTimeZone.bias + "<hr />";
    sDetails += "Display Name: " + oSelectedTimeZone.displayName + "<hr />";
    sDetails += "DST Bias: " + oSelectedTimeZone.DSTBias + "<hr />";
    sDetails += "DST Date: " + oSelectedTimeZone.DSTDate + "<hr />";
    sDetails += "DST Display Name: " + oSelectedTimeZone.DSTDisplayName + "<hr />";
    sDetails += "Name: " + oSelectedTimeZone.name + "<hr />";
