Local time zone adjustment (Definition)

An adjustment to locale specific time.

Availability:

ECMAScript edition - 2

ECMA compliant implementations are expected to determine the local time zone adjustment.

The local time zone adjustment is a value (internally referred to as LocalTZA) which is measured in milliseconds and can be added to the UTC value representing the local standard time.

The ECMA standard states that daylight savings time is not reflected in the LocalTZA value. LocalTZA does not vary with time but depends only on the geographic location.
