Thanks, I have it up and running but the little slashes that represent the hours aren't there. Am I supposed to put them on one of the pictures I made ?

brother thank you very much for this tutorial. very helpful indeed. i was able to create my own clock BUT using the files that you included in your tutorial. i however attempted to start everything from scratch but my clock was not displaying (using different file names such as clock.png as opposed to GTA4.png in the images folder) properly. is there anyway to do this - change the filenames of the image files? i tried looking at the .xml / .html / .css /.js files in the en-US folder for clues, but no such luck (unless I missed it).

also, are the files in the en-US folder that came from your tutorial the same with the built-in Win7 clock?

thanks a lot!
