# I coined "IST/IDT" circa 1988. Until then there were three
# different abbreviations in use:
#
# JST Jerusalem Standard Time [Danny Braniss, Hebrew University]
# IZT Israel Zonal (sic) Time [Prof. Haim Papo, Technion]
# EEST Eastern Europe Standard Time [used by almost everyone else]
#
# Since timezones should be called by country and not capital cities,
# I ruled out JST. As Israel is in Asia Minor and not Eastern Europe,
# EEST was equally unacceptable. Since "zonal" was not compatible with
# any other timezone abbreviation, I felt that 'IST' was the way to go
# and, indeed, it has received almost universal acceptance in timezone
# settings in Israeli computers.
#
# In any case, I am happy to share timezone abbreviations with India,
