International developers/designers, could you check to see my app's time zone works? thks

Hi all,

I have this simple time management tool designed and developed. And
based on a very thoughtful and kind Frenchman's input I've extended
its support to international (support all time zones), however, I'm
not 100% sure if its global time zone support is perfectly correct.
Please try it and offer feedback, URL, http://www.mytata.net/

Since that page is headed "11/04/2007 (EDT)", you are obviously not
competent to write in an international medium.

EDT is used in (at least) Australia and America; and the date could be
either 11th April or November 4th.

It's not clear whether that is intended to be the current date or the
date of editing.

If you are only interested in serving the US market, then say so,
clearly. If you want to serve internationally , then do it correctly -
use International Standard ISO 8601 date formats and indicate
differences from GMT/UTC, if needed, numerically.

You have a drop-down for Time Zone. Consider the GMT-6 entry, marked
CST. But CST is only used in the winter. It has entries for GMT-12 to
GMT+12, hourly. That's not very nice for those offset from GMT by a
non-integer number of hours - don't you need to be nice to such as Iran,
Afghanistan, Venezuela, Newfoundland, India, Nepal, and those in the
Very Far East at GMT+14?

Nope. I'm in the Central time zone (the one in North America, that is).
Yesterday morning, we here in the US went off of Daylight Savings Time
and back to Standard Time (except in Arizona and Indianapolis, which
are always on Standard Time).

Even though my correct time zone code is now "CST", your page tells
me that it's "EDT". Is it coincidental that both CST and EDT have
the same off-set from UTC?

Thanks, Michael, am glad that I check back on this thread, not
updating EDT to EST was an oversight. Some one blew it into nonsense,
even political sort of flame, unnecessary.

Potential users should note that not only are the site maintainers
incompetent, but that they also whine petulantly when their failings are
pointed out.
Their page <http://web.mytata.net: 8000/myTA/fails Opera Ctrl-Alt-V
validation (that is, of course, W3); the first error is fatal to
validation.

Just fancy having a DOCTYPE with unmatched quotes! That prevents
further validation; but fixing it reveals a further 21 errors.

The time zone drop-down still has only integer offsets in -12..+12.
