In technical documentation do you refer to the turn of the century at Jan. 1,
2000 or Jan. 1, 2001? If the first year A.D. was 1, then it follows that the
first year of the 21st century will be 2001. Many pundits are touting the year
2000 because with all those zeroes it must be important, but what is correct?

Just wondering,
