several Clocks with hopefully not too much overhead
Boy did we have fun trying to get all the clocks to work.
First, the old cross browser ugly reared its head in several instances of clocks
that demo nicely but don't want to work in a complete set of browsers -
IE5-8, NS?, Firefox, Opera, and Safari. The second problem we had was the interference
the setTimeout() and/or setInterval() commands between routines. Be sure to check to make sure all the variables are unique, ditto for CSS. For example,
we could get several clocks to work well on their own but then they did not
want to co-operate when on display with 2 or 3 other clocks. Now this latter case is an important matter because developers can easily
have more than one setTimeout() or set Interval() command if there any animations,
timer conflicts carefully.
