This is the third time I've tried to send this to the list. :( Crossing my
paws this time.

UT and GMT aren't *quite* the same thing, but the distinction between the
two doesn't matter unless you need to be accurate to the same degree as a
Cesium-based chronometer.

Universal Time is the phrase I've seen in more common usage of late. The
most common use for a while was 'Greenwich time' (without the 'mean'), but
that has fallen by the wayside (along with words like 'wayside').
