/**
 *
 * <code>TimeZone</code> represents a time zone offset, and also figures out daylight
 * savings.
 *
 * <p>
 * Typically, you get a <code>TimeZone</code> using <code>createDefault</code>
 * which creates a <code>TimeZone</code> based on the time zone where the program
 * is running. For example, for a program running in Japan, <code>createDefault</code>
 * creates a <code>TimeZone</code> object based on Japanese Standard Time.
 *
 * <p>
 * You can also get a <code>TimeZone</code> using <code>createTimeZone</code> along
 * with a time zone ID. For instance, the time zone ID for the US Pacific
 * Time zone is "America/Los_Angeles". So, you can get a Pacific Time <code>TimeZone</code> object
 * with:
 * \htmlonly<blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * <pre>
 * TimeZone *tz = TimeZone::createTimeZone("America/Los_Angeles");
 * </pre>
 * \htmlonly</blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * You can use <code>getAvailableIDs</code> method to iterate through
 * all the supported time zone IDs. You can then choose a
 * supported ID to get a <code>TimeZone</code>.
 * If the time zone you want is not represented by one of the
 * supported IDs, then you can create a custom time zone ID with
 * the following syntax:
 *
 * \htmlonly<blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 * <pre>
 * GMT[+|-]hh[[:]mm]
 * </pre>
 * \htmlonly</blockquote>\endhtmlonly
 *
 * For example, you might specify GMT+14:00 as a custom
 * time zone ID.  The <code>TimeZone</code> that is returned
 * when you specify a custom time zone ID does not include
 * daylight savings time.
 *
 * TimeZone is an abstract class representing a time zone.  A TimeZone is needed for
 * Calendar to produce local time for a particular time zone.  A TimeZone comprises
 * three basic pieces of information:
 * <ul>
 *    <li>A time zone offset; that, is the number of milliseconds to add or subtract
 *      from a time expressed in terms of GMT to convert it to the same time in that
 *      time zone (without taking daylight savings time into account).</li>
 *    <li>Logic necessary to take daylight savings time into account if daylight savings
 *      time is observed in that time zone (e.g., the days and hours on which daylight
 *      savings time begins and ends).</li>
 *    <li>An ID.  This is a text string that uniquely identifies the time zone.</li>
 * </ul>
 *
 * (Only the ID is actually implemented in TimeZone; subclasses of TimeZone may handle
 * daylight savings time and GMT offset in different ways.  Currently we only have one
 * TimeZone subclass: SimpleTimeZone.)
 * <P>
 * The TimeZone class contains a static list containing a TimeZone object for every
 * combination of GMT offset and daylight-savings time rules currently in use in the
 * world, each with a unique ID.  Each ID consists of a region (usually a continent or
 * ocean) and a city in that region, separated by a slash, (for example, US Pacific
 * Time is "America/Los_Angeles.")  Because older versions of this class used
 * three- or four-letter abbreviations instead, there is also a table that maps the older
 * abbreviations to the newer ones (for example, "PST" maps to "America/Los_Angeles").
 * Anywhere the API requires an ID, you can use either form.
 * <P>
 * To create a new TimeZone, you call the factory function TimeZone::createTimeZone()
 * and pass it a time zone ID.  You can use the createEnumeration() function to
 * obtain a list of all the time zone IDs recognized by createTimeZone().
 * <P>
 * You can also use TimeZone::createDefault() to create a TimeZone.  This function uses
 * platform-specific APIs to produce a TimeZone for the time zone corresponding to
 * the client's computer's physical location.  For example, if you're in Japan (assuming
 * your machine is set up correctly), TimeZone::createDefault() will return a TimeZone
 * for Japanese Standard Time ("Asia/Tokyo").
