### Are all ideals I in the ring of smooth functions on a compact manifold M equal to a set of smooth functions that vanish in $Z \subset M$?

Since $M$ is compact, we know that maximal ideals are $m_x$, the set of functions vanishing in $x \in M$. Thus by Zorn's Lemma we also have that $I$ must sit inside such a $m_x$ for some $x \in M$. ...
