San Francisco (USA) is 9 hours behind Paris time
Edinburgh (Scotland) is 1 hour behind Paris time
Melbourne (Australia) is 8 hours ahead of Paris time (I think!)

Q. For some reason, the table format doesn't work on my PC with my version of Netscape. All the entries run together in one large paragraph.
A. The earliest version of Netscape does not recognize the table function. The tables worked after installation of Netscape 1.22, which in addition required a Windows 3.2 update. (Thanks to Steve Norris).
