--- Comment #2 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
Section 9.8.4.2 starts:

<quote>
9.8.4.2 Formatting timezones

Special rules apply to the formatting of timezones. When the component
specifiers Z or z are used, the rules in this section override any rules given
elsewhere in the case of discrepancies.
</quote>

The rules that follow make no mention of the width specifier, and define
precriptive output for each option, so one might conclude that the width
specifier is ignored.

One could also argue that the phrase "If no mechanism is available for fitting
the value" is referring to mechanisms described earlier in the same paragraph.

9.8.4.1 does say that timezones should be padded to the minWidth, and I think
we can assume that is effective because it doesn't conflict with anything in
9.8.4.2.

Conclusion: despite our heroic efforts to clean this up from the XSLT 2.0
version, there is still room for improvement.
