It might have to do with how you entered the date. Watch out this example: >>> DateTime('2006-12-05 13:30:00') DateTime('2006/12/05 13:30:00 GMT+1') >>> DateTime('2006-12-05T13:30:00') DateTime('2006/12/05 13:30:00 GMT+0') This means that a single character (the "T" above) may change the timezone the date is assumed to come from. >-- >Kirk Strauser >Daycos > -- Dieter _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
