    GMT = Greenwich Mean Time

    It's also known as universal time. It doesn't have any "time zones" so when it's say 21:00 GMT it's 21:00 GMT all over the world.

    GMT = Greenwich Mean Time

    For the offical explanation (sp):

    Military & Civilian Time Designations
    From A - Z
    There are 25 integer World Time Zones from -12 through 0 (GMT) to +12. Each one is 15° of Longitude as measured East and West from the Prime Meridian of the World at Greenwich, England. Some countries have adopted non-standard time zones, usually 30 minutes offset which have a * designation.

    Each Time Zone is measured relative to Greenwich, England. There are both civilian designations which are typically three letter abbreviations (e.g. EST) for most time zones. In addition there are military designations. These use each letter of the alphabet (except 'J') and are known by their phonetic equivalent. E.G. Greenwich Mean Time (civilian) or Z = Zulu (military and aviation).

    So you being in Flordia Eastern time zone, your time would be - 5:00.

    Which would be in "Time Zone" R known as:
    EST: Eastern Standard
    Other cities using EST: Bogota Lima, Peru, New York, NY, USA

    If you go to your "User Control Panel" and select "Edit Options" there is a selection "Offset Time" that allows you to configure the time relative to your time zone. Good luck.
