Well, you can do this several ways, and you'll have to test it on
various calendar applications to see what happens.

Option 1: Don't use an end date
<abbr class="dtstart" title="2006-10-29T03:00:00">End Daylight Savings</abbr>

Option 2: Explicit Timezone and a 1 second duration
<abbr class="dtstart" title="2006-10-29T03:00:00-0500">End Daylight
<abbr class="dtend" title="2006-10-29T02:00:01-0600">Start Normal Time</abbr>

Semantically, if you are declaring and end-time, then you should say
what it is an end too.

Option 3: Declare start and end times for ALL of daylight savings
<abbr class="dtstart" title="2006-??-??T02:00:01">Start Daylight Saving</abbr>
<abbr class="dtend" title="2006-10-29T03:00:00">End Daylight Savings</abbr>
