The special area of "Etc" is used for some administrative zones, particularly for "Etc/UTC" which represents Coordinated Universal Time. In order to conform with the POSIX style, those zone names beginning with "Etc/GMT" have their sign reversed from what most people expect. In this style, zones west of GMT have a positive sign and those east have a negative sign in their name (e.g "Etc/GMT-14" is 14 hours ahead/east of GMT.)

Don’t use 'EST', at least in PHP 5.3.3 it’s the same as 'EST5EDT' rather than being strictly standard time.  The only reliable way I’ve found to interpret a time as standard time is to use a UTC-relative format such as:

$dateObject = date_create("2013-06-30 07:00:00-0500");

Take note that while EST and MST are valid, according to this list, PST and CST are not. I am not sure why, but it has caught me off guard. However, if using the DST versions of the "American" timezone strings, you have all four: EST5EDT, CST6CDT, MST7MDT and PST8PDT.
