Without additional configuration, the time shown in signatures, etc.
will be in UTC as this is saved into the page content and isn't
processed per-user.

I say "without additional configuration" because there are some
configuration variables which deal with timezone offsets on the server
side, and these will alter various aspects of date/time handling.
