Clockband and ClockbandXP

This charityware is authored by:

1) Clockband - This requires IE4 with the Web Integrated Desktop. It adds a resizable DeskBand object that displays a clock to your Windows TaskBar. You can completely control the format of the date and time data displayed. I wrote this because I hated the fact that I couldn't control the format of the standard TaskBar clock, and I wanted to learn some of the IE4 shell interfaces.

2) ClockbandXP - This is an update of Clock Band for Windows XP (and later). It uses the new XP theme APIs to paint correctly on the XP TaskBar. Because it links to several XP-specific DLLs (e.g. UXTheme.dll and ComCtl32.dll v6) and has a custom manifest, I decided to make this a separate DLL and object from the original Clock Band.
