AFAIK, EST is Eastern Standard Time, just as PST is Pacific Standard Time and so forth. These are strictly regional, and these acronyms are very commonly used in North America even as an identifier of the region that you live in. I don't know if that is what you getting at or if it clarifies anything... -- 07:04, 25 January 2008 (EST) (Odders)

Yeah, I'm familiar with the US timezone identifiers and their in-common-usage. I was more pointing out that 'EST' is also the acronym for Australian Eastern Standard/Summer Time. I've had people (Americans) online flat out tell that my computer is broken when my 'date' command says I'm in 'EST', but gives a UTC+10 time instead of their expected UTC-5 time. Timezone acronyms are NOT unique - yet they are assumed to be (especially by Americans). That's the point I was making. Nemo 09:39, 25 January 2008 (EST)
