Description:
------------
---
From manual page: http://www.php.net/function.strftime#refsect1-function.strftime-
parameters
---

Documentation says that %z returns either the abbreviation (e.g., PST) or the 
offset (-0800), and that %Z will return the other one. But %z and %Z are both 
giving me the same result, which is neither the abbreviation nor the offset but 
the full timezone name ('Pacific Standard Time'). There are mentions of similar 
problems in the comments, but the documentation hasn't been corrected.

Ah, Windows. Every time you need to guarantee an OS will get part of a spec wrong, there you are.

Revision: http://svn.php.net/viewvc/?view=revision&revision=328617
Log: Update the documentation for the %z and %Z strftime() modifiers to reflect how
C99 specifies them, and describe how Windows misinteprets them.

Also add a <literal /> to the Solaris warning, since there was one missing and
I was already in there.

Fixes doc bug #63662 (Strftime documentation for %z & %Z is not (necessarily?)
correct.).
