I applied a very small and dirty hack and manually set timezone
abbreviation instead of long name:

In file html.py, lines 1137-1141:

# mloskot: small hack to remove long TZ name for Eastern Europe
#TZ = time.tzname[time.daylight]
TZ = "CET"
data += td("time (%s)" % TZ, align="center", class_="Time")

ATM, I don't know how to retrieve TZ abbrev. automatically, using
Python and time module API.

Does anyone know?
