So, how would zic interpret "<space><space><space>\t\t\t", as on the Antarctica/Troll zone?

It's given in the zic man page, which says "Fields are separated from

one another by one or more white space characters."  Tabs and spaces are

both white space characters, and it's immaterial which is used.  The

other white space characters (other than newline itself) are '\f', '\r',

and '\v'.
