BTW, I did some research on-line and found some info regarding these five
historic timezones from some Taiwan websites. And yes, there are official
Chinese names for these locales (before 1949):
(Chinese names in GB2312 encoding in parentheses)
Asia/Harbin Changbai Time (长白时区)
= "Long-white Time", Long-white = Heilongjiang area
Asia/Shanghai Zhongyuan Time (中原时区)
= "Central plain Time"
Asia/Chongqing Long-shu Time (陇蜀时区)
= "Long-Shu Time"; I guess Long and Shu are two
historic names of that area? :-)
forgot where Long is, but Shu is in the area
of the "Romance of the Three Kingdoms". :-)
Asia/Urumqi Xin-zang Time (新藏时区)
= "Xinjiang-Tibet Time"
Asia/Kashgar Kunlun Time (昆仑时区)
I'm subscribed to quite a few Chinese mailing lists. I will try to ask
around to see if anyone knows more about these time zones. :-)
