Most alphabetic time zone *abbreviations* /invented/ by the time zone project
were replaced a few years ago by numeric UTC offsets.
Those /invented/ alphabetic time zone *abbreviations* replaced were not found to
be widely used online either in English contexts, or in the language scripts
commonly used on web sites in the country.
The time zone project handles neither I18N internationalization nor L14N
localization to provide time zone descriptions or abbreviations in the languages
and scripts used in non-English-using countries.
I18N and L14N for time zones are provided by the Unicode CLDR project for most
countries, languages, and scripts, with supporting packages and programming
language bindings available for most systems, distributions, and package
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis Calgary, Alberta, Canada
