------------ , which lists the timezone UTC says: "Note:  Please do not use any of the timezones listed here, they only exist for backward compatible reasons."

OTOH says:  "timezone_identifier The timezone identifier, like UTC or Europe/Lisbon."

Also, says: "If none of the above options succeeds, return UTC".

I suggest to substitute UTC for something that does not exist for backward compatible reasons only.

UTC is not deprecated.. the message on that page is not 100% correct.

This bug has been fixed in the documentation's XML sources. Since the
online and downloadable versions of the documentation need some time
to get updated, we would like to ask you to be a bit patient.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make our documentation better.

List of Supported Timezones -> Others, there are words:

Please do not use any of the timezones listed here (besides UTC), they only exist for backward compatible reasons.


I think the 'besides UTC' should be replaced by 'except UTC'.
