****bzzzt*** Sorry, but thank you to Kendrick. The century marks are
skipped unless they are factorable by 400. 1900 was not a leap year,
but 2000 will be. And yes, a solar year is not quite 365.25 days, so
we don't make 1700, 1800, and 1900 leap years. For more details about the
Gregorian Calandar, visit a library please, 'cause I've just told you
everything I remember about it.
