I was under the impression, from the few that I look at on a map, that the 
coordinates in zone.tab were supposed to be approximately where the name of 
the zone and the most well-known place is.

America/Sitka puzzles me, though. At 57 10 35, -135 18 07, the point is in 
the water of Katlian Bay, about 150m offshore of a seemingly uninhabited 
area. The point is 14 km from Sitka.

Should this be changed to 57d03'06", -135d20'19"?
