--- Comment #3 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> ---
Might be worth adding something in the <time> section under "valid time-zone
offset string" and under "valid global date and time string", and in the input
section in the type=datetime subsection (maybe in the example that's already
there), basically saying that if the time is of a recurring event that is at a
fixed local time rather than at a fixed global time, using a timezone-less time
and specifying the physical location is a better idea than using time zones,
since time zones at a specific location change with daylight savings (and
sometimes for other reasons).
