The fading effects of the year 2000 AD may be awkward to track.  In
spell out, the year '2001' was 'two thousand and one' in 2001, but I
believe is now moving back to the more regular 'twenty-oh-one'.
Likewise, dd/mm/yyyy dates (e.g. 28/1/2018) are now moving back to
dd/mm/yy dates (e.g. 28/1/18) when written manually.  And I suspect the
French have now completely dropped the idea that the year date 2018 may
legitimately be written 19118.
