  | In NSW, even though it is "summer" time, it is still legally also 
  | "standard" time!

That might be true in Vic as well (that's the cheap way of making
everything defined to relate to standard time automatically update
and apply to summer time).

But the name of the Vic time zone is Eastern Summer Time
(whether it is standard time or not...)

  | Nowhere in the act containing this are abbreviations defined.

That's true in Vic as well.

  | PS: Robert, do you have any idea why your mail's time-stamp offset is 
  | given as "+0700"? Are you (or is your mail server) on Christmas 
  | Island?

+0700 is correct, but no, it isn't Christmas Island...
