GMT Standard Time vs. Greenwich Standard Time vs. UTC
I am hoping this is the correct discussion group - if not please feel free to
point me in the right direction.

Reference:
1) Select "(GMT) Greenwich Mean Time: Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London"
from the Time Zone tab in the Date and Time properties in Windows XP
2) Select "(GMT) Casablanca, Monrovia, Reykjavik" from the Time Zone tab in
the Date and Time properties in Windows XP

Question:
Why is #1 above UTC + 1 hour; I thought "Greenwich Mean Time" was synonymous
with UTC? Is this a Microsoft issue or is the "(GMT) Greenwich Mean Time:
Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London" currently set to BST (British Summer Time)?

Cheers,
