We have localized display names for 3 variations of the name, eg: "(UTC-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)", "Pacific Standard Time" and "Pacific Daylight Time" could all be translated into whatever shows up in the drop-down.

Windows appears to be able to handle non ascii timezone names(*), does anyone know if their database has any localized timezone names?
