Subject: Inconsistent format of data files?



I'm working on compiling the time zone data into an XML file for easier
handling in a program.  I noticed some inconsistencies in the format of
the files versus the description in zic.8.txt.  For example, in the
latest version in Africa on line 93 there is an extra tab at the
beginning.  Can anyone confirm if this?  I've attached screenshots of
what I am seeing.
