The text by Paul Schulze about Brazilian timezones is missing all accented
characters. Here is the text with the proper characters:
+ # From Paul Schulze (2008-06-24):
+ # ...by law number 11.662 of April 24, 2008 (published in the "Diário
Oficial da União"...)
+ # in Brazil there are changes in the timezones, effective today (00:00am
+ # at June 24, 2008) as follows:
+ # a) The timezone UTC+5 is e[x]tinguished, with all the Acre state and the
+ # part of the Amazonas state that had this timezone now being put to the
+ # timezone UTC+4
+ # b) The whole Pará state now is put at timezone UTC+3, instead of just
+ # part of it, as was before.
+ # This change follows a proposal of senator Tião Viana of Acre state, that
+ # proposed it due to concerns about open television channels displaying
+ # programs inappropriate to youths in the states that had the timezone
+ # UTC+5 too early in the night. In the occasion, some more corrections
+ # were proposed, trying to unify the timezones of any given state. This
+ # change modifies timezone rules defined in decree 2.784 of 18 June,
+ # 1913.
