      Description

      The staged USDST FAQ at:
        http://jscpreview.sfbay/developer/technicalArticles/Intl/USDST_Faq.html

      has a table column in secion 5 that seems misleading.

      "Which JRE version updates include which versions of the Olson data?"

      In the first column of the table, it indicates that "1.4,2_10 and earlier"
      have "Supported tzdata version" of "none"

      Firstly, note comma instead of period for release name above.

      Secondly, I used the tzupdater tool to check my time zone data:
      tiffin 5.9 # java -version
      java version "1.4.2_08"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_08-b03)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_08-b03, mixed mode)
      tiffin 5.9 # java -jar tzupdater.jar -V
      tzupdater version 1.1.0-b04
      JRE time zone data version: tzdata2003a <====== !
      Embedded time zone data version: tzdata2007c
      tiffin 5.9 #

      So it seems I have olsen data "tzdata2003a" and not "none" as suggested.

      The wording of that section should be modified to reflect that such releases
      do not have olsen data that supports the USDST change.
