Heck, you have four *major* occurences while walking across the North American continent, and half-a-dozen other minor ones - note, for example, that there's a chunk of Canada that is *30 minutes* off of the major time zones, and that at times of the year, Australia has both vertical *and* horizontal divisions of time zone, some of the offset by *15* minutes. It can be a *REAL* nightmare, especially for a website being connected to from all over the world.
