[tz] [PATCH v2 4/4] zic.8: Use correct letter case in page title (TH)

The Linux man-pages started using for the page title (TH) the correct
letter case that programs and identifiers have.  This change was agreed
with groff(1) and mandoc(1) maintainers as an improvement, since it
provides more information to the reader of a manual page.
