So, how are other developers dealing with this issue?  Are you building and
providing your own localization of the time zone descriptions?  Are you
compiling and shipping your own
java.text.resources.DateFormatZoneData_XXX.class?

You are correct, not only doesn't display localized, it doesn't update
itself to current settings. 


Join the locales discussion group on yahoo, tz is a big issue there.

What's up with time zones in JAVA.  It seems that JAVA did NOT do
localization of the time zone descriptors.  What good is it to display the
English text for a time zone to a Japanese user?
