Great function! Moving records back and forth between FileMaker SOAP web services and MySQL tables is made much simpler with this handy calculation.

There is an issue with XML format for Eastern Hemisphere times.

This line:
sg = If ( sgn > 1 ; "+" ; "-");

Should be
sg = If ( sgn = 1 ; "+" ; "-");

Otherwise you never get +ve timezones.
