Check out:

I am doing this now for a site that will take reservations worldwide for resources based on the local time of the resource.

It sure ain't pretty.  I mainly punted on the PG 7.2.3 functions -- they do not see to be a complete timezone algebra in the mathematical sense.  (Or just not very clear.)

I end up doing a lot of string manipulation.

Worse is tonight's showstopper -- maybe I am too tired, but the data in timezone refs seems to be incorrect.  More on that in the next post.

Also, speak to Simon Carstensen, I think he is doing some work in that area.
