Description:
------------
Daylight Savings doesn't work with the UTC time zone
It does work if I set the time zone to Europe/London.

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php
echo date_default_timezone_get() . "\n";
$two_weeks_ago = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time()-1209600);
echo $tw?php
echo date_default_timezone_get() . "\n";
$two_weeks_ago = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time()-1209600);
echo $two_weeks_ago . "\n";
$right_now = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time());
echo $right_now . "\n\n";
date_default_timezone_set("Europe/London");
echo date_default_timezone_get() . "\n";
$two_weeks_ago = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time()-1209600);
echo $two_weeks_ago . "\n";
$right_now = date("d-M-Y h:i:o_weeks_ago . "\n";
$right_now = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time());
echo $right_now . "\n\n";
date_default_timezone_set("Europe/London");
echo date_default_timezone_get() . "\n";
$two_weeks_ago = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time()-1209600);
echo $two_weeks_ago . "\n";
$right_now = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time());
echo $right_now . "\n\n";
date_default_timezone_set("UTC");
echo date_default_timezone_get() . "\n";
$two_weeks_ago = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time()-1209600);
echo $two_weeks_ago . "\n";
$right_now = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time());
echo $right_now . "\n";
?>


Expected result:
----------------
UTC
18-Oct-2008 10:17:25 UTC 1
01-Nov-2008 09:17:25 UTC 0

Europe/London
18-Oct-2008 10:17:25 BST 1

UTC
18-Oct-2008 10:17:25 UTC 1
01-Nov-2008 09:17:25 UTC 0

The code got scrambled when cutting and pasting. Here's the correct code.
===================
<?php
echo date_default_timezone_get() . "\n";
$two_weeks_ago = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time()-1209600);
echo $two_weeks_ago . "\n";
$right_now = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time());
echo $right_now . "\n\n";
date_default_timezone_set("Europe/London");
echo date_default_timezone_get() . "\n";
$two_weeks_ago = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time()-1209600);
echo $two_weeks_ago . "\n";
$right_now = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time());
echo $right_now . "\n\n";
date_default_timezone_set("UTC");
echo date_default_timezone_get() . "\n";
$two_weeks_ago = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time()-1209600);
echo $two_weeks_ago . "\n";
$right_now = date("d-M-Y h:i:s T I", time());
echo $right_now . "\n";
?>

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not

There's no daylight saving time with UTC.
