<clock-value>

Clock values have the same syntax as in SMIL Animation specification. The grammar for clock values is repeated here:

Clock-val         ::= Full-clock-val | Partial-clock-val 
                      | Timecount-val
Full-clock-val    ::= Hours ":" Minutes ":" Seconds ("." Fraction)?
Partial-clock-val ::= Minutes ":" Seconds ("." Fraction)?
Timecount-val     ::= Timecount ("." Fraction)? (Metric)?
Metric            ::= "h" | "min" | "s" | "ms"
Hours             ::= DIGIT+; any positive number
Minutes           ::= 2DIGIT; range from 00 to 59
Seconds           ::= 2DIGIT; range from 00 to 59
Fraction          ::= DIGIT+
Timecount         ::= DIGIT+
2DIGIT            ::= DIGIT DIGIT
DIGIT             ::= [0-9]

For Timecount values, the default metric suffix is "s" (for seconds). No embedded white space is allowed in clock values, although leading and trailing white space characters will be ignored.

The following are examples of legal clock values:

  • Full clock values:
    02:30:03 = 2 hours, 30 minutes and 3 seconds
    50:00:10.25 = 50 hours, 10 seconds and 250 milliseconds
  • Partial clock value:
    02:33 = 2 minutes and 33 seconds
    00:10.5 = 10.5 seconds = 10 seconds and 500 milliseconds
  • Timecount values:
    3.2h = 3.2 hours = 3 hours and 12 minutes
    45min = 45 minutes
    30s = 30 seconds
    5ms = 5 milliseconds
    12.467 = 12 seconds and 467 milliseconds

Fractional values are just (base 10) floating point definitions of seconds. Thus:

00.5s = 500 milliseconds
00:00.005 = 5 milliseconds
