Time Zone Descriptor clean-up needed

I am looking to clean up the time zone descriptors listed in the "Choose Your Time Zone" column here >> https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0ApGg6c9aeywQdGZ5VzcxZHljZkJjQmJ5Y2hJMFgzYUE&hl=en

They should represent the offset first, then the actual name of the time zone, then the location.  What is missing is the actual name of the time zone in many cases.  Thanks you guys very much for all the help thus far on this >> https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0ApGg6c9aeywQdGZ5VzcxZHljZkJjQmJ5Y2hJMFgzYUE&hl=en

Google will give loads of links:
USA time zone names

North America time zones

Time zones of Australia

To enter them in the table in Sheet3 of your spreadsheet you just need to be able to type. You do not need an Excel expert

You change the names in the description table to anything you like yourself. It requires nothing technical assistance.

You can also add new time zones like +9.30 in Adelaide as long as you add both descriptor and time zone. In this example it would be something like Description = Adelaide + 9:30 and Time Zone =   9.5

What you cannot do is to add more than one row for the same time zone. So if you want more place for a time zone you need to add it in the same cell

Sorry I lied then, you can actually add more than one row for the same time zone. The lookup is on the Description in column A in sheet3 so only the Descriptions need to be different.

The name of the time zones aren't listed there.  Not sure what they are?

Central Time Zone is particularly important to have.
