2205:   #   # http://www.worldtimezone.com/dst_news/dst_news_cuba03.html    + # From Arthur David Olson (2008-03-09): + # I'm in Maryland which is now observing United States Eastern Daylight + # Time.

Many other web pages in Cuba also claim that it has been + # observed since 1963, but with the exception of 1970 - an exception + # which is not present in tzdata/Shanks.
