Is there any standard effort try to standardize Time Zone ID? I am not
talking about the Time Zone which refer to a particular time (that could
be done by GMT offset or addressed by ISO 8601) itself, but rather
talking about an id refer to a particular time zone/ day light saving
I know the de factor standard around is the one in
"ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/tz" . Probably people also use the timezone
value get back from Java a lot.
I think a standard (maybe just adopt the one
"ftp://elsie.nci.nih.gov/pub/tz" and cleary specify it in RFC) for
Timezone ID is important for the future common locale data repository as
well as web services i18n.
I know this is a little bit off-topic for Unicode, just like the one
about locale. Maybe I should move this to w3c i18n mailling list.
