hi mike,

I am sure the rules are ok. I just don't understand them! The first says
add an hour, then the second says add 0? But the clocks go back in
winter. Can you please explain this rule:

>> Rule    EU   1996  max     -       Oct     lastSun  1:00u  0    -

Apologies for labouring this but I want to comprehend it.
