For summer time append 'ST';    for double summer time append 'DST'; etc.    Otherwise, take the first three letters of an English place    name identifying each zone and append 'T', 'ST', etc.    as before; e.g. 'VLAST' for VLAdivostok Summer Time.    -  Use UT (with time zone abbreviation 'zzz') for locations while -  uninhabited. The 'zzz' mnemonic is that these locations are, -  in some sense, asleep. +  Use UT (with time zone abbreviation '-00') for locations while +  uninhabited. The leading '-' is a flag that the time +  zone is in some sense undefined; this notation is +  derived from Internet RFC 3339.      Application writers should note that these abbreviations are ambiguous   in practice: e.g. 'CST' has a different meaning in China than   it does in the United States. In new applications, it's often better   to use numeric UT offsets like '-0600' instead of time zone   abbreviations like 'CST'; this avoids the ambiguity.         ----- Accuracy of the tz database -----
