Actually I just did it to be consistent with what you've already written
, and what I'm using in the French translation of the DPN since.
Not sure it is so confusing: nobody seems confused by the fact that
(almost) every four-digits years beginning with 20 is refereed as being
part of the twenty-first century.
What is confusing, IMHO, is that the twenty-first century began on year
2001, but blame the first Christans who probably weren't aware of the
existence of zero and began to count from number one (so Jesus probably
had every N-th birthday in year N+1 AD). The silliest stuff about year
count is that -1 is directly followed by +1, but anyway, it's far away
from the initial topic...

Ok, so I'm going to correct the 4th English DPN, and almost every French
DPN of this year on this topic.
