Once you know your time zone is it get easier.  For example:  CST is
GMT/UTC plus 5 hours and CDST is plus 6 hours.  Simple, yes ?
Assuming CST is Central Standard Time, I have two things to point out:

(1)

CST is UTC *minus* 6 hours
CDT is UTC *minus* 5 hours

(2) The official abbreviations for the timezones in the lower 48 states are:
EST/CST/MST/PST (winter/non-DST) and EDT/CDT/MDT/PDT (winter/DST)
Err, copy & paste error - that should read:

(2) The official abbreviations for the timezones in the lower 48 states are:
EST/CST/MST/PST (winter/non-DST) and EDT/CDT/MDT/PDT (summer/DST)


Sorry,

Jeff.
