	once it gets implemented.

The item google gave you is the site that I heard about it.


		So can you please direct me to where I can download the
timezone area

	Some timezone area data is mentioned under "Time zone
boundaries" in
<http://www.twinsun.com/tz/tz-link.htm> .  You can look there, but I
	suspect it won't be exactly what you want.

The only one that looks to have potential was the link to
On that site they have a link to a TZ boundary database
But that link keeps timing out. i did a search for the file itself under
google, and the two "mirrors" for it are down as well.

Do you happen to know how to get this file?

Thanks in advance.
