[Alain] :
Thanks for the info. I'll have a careful look...

A priori, I believe that we should deprecate the truncated form removing
the century-related data out of the date... Please, if you do not hear from
me because I would be too busy, make that comment to the editor (on my
behalf with my permission, if necessary). I'm sure it will be said, but who

We know why it should be depreacted... for about 2 decades (and I'm
optimistic) at least, this will be more than prudent! I wish all computers
all competed with Deep Blue, but unfortunately that's not the case...
