Subject: Corrections to latitudes/longitudes in zone.tab


I've run across a couple of inaccurate latitudes/longitudes in tz's
zone.tab (2006n):

                  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.
