Ah, I missed that last point and was using the 8601 version. Make it -44-03-13 for XML Schema (ptui!). But Walter was making a different, and to me rather invisible, point: it's inappropriate (he says) to identify the forward-running AUC calendar with the retrospective B.C.E. one; indeed, he wants to say that A.D. and C.E. calendars are derived by different algorithms, although those happen to agree. I will not say that he is gagging on a mouse and swallowing a camel, because I don't see the camel. -- John Cowan <jcowan@r...> http://www.reutershealth.com I amar prestar aen, han mathon ne nen, http://www.ccil.org/~cowan han mathon ne chae, a han noston ne 'wilith. --Galadriel, _LOTR:FOTR_
