If you look at the W3C note about date time
and information about the iCal/hCal date time stamps, you will notice
that a full UTC date time stamp is valid, so it would look something
like the following:

<abbr title="20050816T170200Z">5:02 p.m. EDT (21:02 GMT), August 16,

Here is the Wiki page about datetime formats

There was some older discussion on this list about the ISO time stamp
and acceptable formats for hCalendar.
