Subject: Corrections to latitudes/longitudes in zone.tab
I've run across a couple of inaccurate latitudes/longitudes in tz's
Approx true lat/long zone.tab lat/long
Europe/Jersey +4912-00207 +4912-00237
Europe/Podgorica +4227+01916 +4247+01928
Jersey perhaps looks like a typo.; Podgorica's latitude looks like a
typo., but not the longitude.
The corrected values come from playing with my Firefox time zone
extension (http://www.stemhaus.com/firefox/foxclocks/) and Google Earth,
and are of course entirely subjective.
