FF find 1883 found only the date, not the href *%#@!

In the IANA http: time-zones directory, those files seem to be named .html.
In the code and data subdirectories, theory and tz-how-to have .html suffixes,
tz-art and tz-link have .htm suffixes.
In the IANA ftp: tz directory, these are evidently .html symlinks:
theory.html -> code/theory.html
tz-art.html -> code/tz-art.htm
tz-how-to.html -> code/tz-how-to.html
tz-link.html -> code/tz-link.htm

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
