DST and zic errors

uname tells me digital unix V4.0 878 alpha.

i'm trying to do the manual DST update as outlined in : http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1106942

but the zic command is spewing out a bunch of errors like:
"northamerica", line 621: input line of unknown type
"northamerica", line 622: input line of unknown type
"northamerica", line 623: input line of unknown type
"northamerica", line 624: input line of unknown type
"northamerica", line 640: Zone continuation line end time is not after end time of previous line

if i run the zic command on the older 'northamerica' file, it works fine.

if i VI the new northamerica file, it looks good. ie. not corrupt.

is there something i'm doing wrong?

thankyou

Please attach your file, also, use cat -e to identify non printable characters that could be causing the problem.
