[uf-discuss] hcalendar timezone, DST examples

I believe the most common flaw in vevents is currently missing or  
incorrect timezones.  I was just looking at how timezones are shown  
in the examples, and discovered that they aren't.  Every single  
example is marked as Z.  On the live web, I don't see many actually  
converting their times to UTC, so I think the examples should  
probably reflect the more common use of offsets to encourage better  
timezone markup.

I started by changing the first event to CST under DST.  I also  
changed the timezone question in the FAQ to focus more on what people  
are more often doing (offsets):


I'm still not entirely sure I understand timezones and DST correctly,  
so it would be good for others working with this issue to review.
