Hah! Their French-language page uses "WTG" too -- shouldn't that be "HGO"? (:-)

Since "WGT" is our invention, I'm not inclined to use it for St Pierre & 
Miquelon. When I get around to cleaning up "europe" I can remove "WGT" from the 
Greenland entries.

Yes, for the benefit of people who run 'zic northamerica' and/or 'zic europe'.
