      • Los Angeles (-7)
      • Mogadishu (+3)
      • Shanghai (+8)
  • Styling and Formatting:
    • Customize clock face through the settings window, choosing preset formats or using templated keywords and text.
    • Additional options include choosing a 12 or 24-hour clock and padding single-digit values with a leading zero.
  • CSS Targeting:
    • Target the clock through digital-clock in CSS.
    • Customize each section of the clock individually using digital-clock::part(section).
  • Customizing Text:
    • Modify non-numeric values like time of day, periods, days, months, and ordinals through CSS variables.
    • digital-clock::part(section) {
          font-variant: lining-nums;
    • Example provided when the clock displays emojis for different times of the day.
