Hi Astraea,

Using Christian calendar based computations will not produce favorable results when working with people using other culturally based calendars (Jewish, Indian, Chinese, etc.)

A century based calculation serves well across cultural barriers.

Ex: the fall of the Berlin wall: November 9, 1989

11 9 1989

And

11 9 89

Another date: July 4, 1776

7 4 1776 and 7 4 76.


ETA: The answer is from the maestro.
