Quarter to/past times?[edit]

Quarter past nine (9:15) - čtvrt na deset (literally "a quarter to ten")

This doesn't sound right to me, but since I'm not native, I'd like more input. In Slovenia we also say "četrt na deset" for 9:15, but "na"(.si) does not mean "to"(en) ("do"(.si) would be "to/until"(en)). I think literally it should be something along "a quarter on top of ten" (not quite "a quarter past ten", there's another word for that, "čez"(si)).

The quoted phrase is indeed correct, 9:15 is "čtvrt na deset" in Czech. I'm native from Prague. Jkt 21:38, 29 November 2009 (EST)
