Actually, that's more like ~400 years for the Gregorian calendar (first instituted in 1582; adopted in different dates in different countries, as late as the 1920s in some). Its predecessor, the Julian calendar, goes back ~2000 years. -- == Dan == Dan's Mail Format Site: http://mailformat.dan.info/ Dan's Web Tips: http://webtips.dan.info/ Dan's Domain Site: http://domains.dan.info/
