Far enough for it to be a real issue.  The problem comes from the way
you choose to cut up a round world into flat maps. There are just many
ways to do that.  Whatever system you decide to use just define it
after the data you enter.
I like "World 84" because I believe it will continue to grow into
being the most used standard.  But that is a WAG.
