Hi. Using this: <%= time_zone_select("account", "time_zone" %> I get a list of time zones options, like eg.: <option value="Athens">(GMT+02:00) Athens</option> But as I'm using TZInfo::Timezone, I need to map 'Athens' to 'Europe/Athens' I can see that the mapping I'm looking for is present in the tzinfo_timezone plugin, but I cannot see how to access it. Anyone? Thanks. Morten PS: I'm aware that I could use <%=time_zone_select("account", "time_zone", TZInfo::Timezone.all.sort, :model => TZInfo::Timezone) %> But the resulting select values look horrible, so I'd like to stick with the Rails presentation format.

Hi Morten, <%=time_zone_select("account", "time_zone", TZInfo::Timezone.all.sort, :model => TZInfo::Timezone) %> Actually the code you mentioned above will give a result in the format you are looking for. i.e 'Europe/Athens' $tcode = @params[:account][:time_zone] tz = TZInfo::Timezone.get($tcode) tz = tz.local_to_utc(Time::now()).to_s So, 'tz' will provide you the converted time. Hope it helps you and others. Thanks, Selva
