I mentioned the DST change situation at last week's HTML WG meeting.  Please see the message below that explains this in detail.

Please be aware of this if you are in Europe and plan to participate in the HTML WG meetings via phone or IRC on Thu Mar 18 or Thu Mar 25.

Dear chairs

Semi-annual reminder of the upcoming start of Daylight Saving Time, which  
will start in a week.
     http://www.timeanddate.com/time/dst2010a.html


Most of the US will be moving its clocks forward on Sunday March 14 2010.  
This is two weeks earlier than Europe.
Most European clocks will move 1 hour relative to UTC on Sunday March 28  
2010.

Between March 14 and March 28, the time difference between US and Europe  
will be 1 hour less than it currently is.

Most Zakim teleconference times are based on the US clocks. Therefore,  
unless groups have sent specific requests to base their teleconference  
times on some other timezone or to change your teleconference times this  
month, most folk outside the US will need to join teleconferences *one  
hour earlier* between 14 March and 28 March.

The time links in each date of the teleconference calendar [1] confirm the  
time that Zakim has been instructed to start the
teleconference.

If you are unsure about the scheduled time of any teleconference, check  
the UTC (Z) link above the teleconference name on the specific date of  
that teleconference; e.g. [2].

If you require any changes to individual teleconference times, please be  
sure to give adminreq sufficient notice [3].
