It supports many attributes which can give different styles of presenting date and time like locale attribute formats the date and time according to locale and dateStyle, timeStyle determines how date and time is to be formatted. Date and time can be formatted according to the  time zone by setting the timeZone attribute. We have made a simple program to illustrate this tag.
