The 'century' values in the ISO chronology don't seem right.
If 1965 AD has century=19 in ISO, then 33 AD must have century=0
so 43 BC would have century=-1, not 0.

I think it's confusing to call this "century", since it's one off from the ordinal number of the century. Perhaps "hundreds" or something that is more digity sounding?
