    Steve,

    You wrote:

    "...the zone descriptions west of Greenwich are most often seen as positive numbers while the eastern zone descriptions are labeled as negative"

    Perhaps oddly enough, I am used to seeing it the other way around. I suppose choosing which convention to use depends on whether one thinks in terms of getting from zone time to UTC or vice versa.

    Cheers,

    Sean C.
