Oh, the reason why is because the forum changes the html entities into their > and < counterparts, which messes things up. I forgot about that. Instead, I'll just step you through it.

1. Create the trigger: Likelihood of Flux: (%f)~%
2. Change the language to Lua (top right corner, dropdown box).
3. Copy/paste the stuff below into the value box.

Code:
local function addZero(n)
  if n < 10 then
  n = "0" .. n
  end
  return n
end

totalsecs = ((100-zs.param(1))/100)*3600
totalmins = math.floor(totalsecs/60)
remaindersecs = math.floor(totalsecs%60)
fluxtime = os.time()+totalsecs
fluxhour = os.date('*t',fluxtime).hour
fluxmin = os.date('*t',fluxtime).min
fluxsec = os.date('*t',fluxtime).sec

if fluxhour > 12 then
fluxhour = fluxhour - 12
fluxap = "p"
else
fluxap = "a"
end

zs.sayadd(" [ " .. totalmins .. "m " .. addZero(remaindersecs) .. "s (" .. fluxhour .. ":" .. addZero(fluxmin) .. "." .. addZero(fluxsec) .. fluxap .. ") ]")


That should do what you need to do.
