Hello!

In the hope to achieve more consistency (and avoiding some limited and / or confusing notations), I try to come with a suggestion to a new (hopefully consistent) notation, which is not bounded to decades or "centuries" and not either limited by an estimation "in the middle". Thus I hope this notation will be useful and flexible:

A date between 1900 and 1999, not estimated to a year is denoted: [_ 1900 1999 _]

A date between 1900 and 1999, estimated to be year 1950 is denoted: [_ 1900 1950 1999 _]

A date between 1900 and 1999, estimated to year 1920 is denoted: [_ 1900 1920 1999 _]

A date between 1830 and 1929, not estimated to a year is denoted: [_ 1830 1929 _] (one hundred years with no estimation to a year where the boundaries are not at 00 and 99 of a "century")

A date between 1860 and 1959, estimated to year 1910 is denoted: [_ 1860 1910 1959 _] (one hundred years where the estimation 1910 is (almost) in the middle and where the boundaries are not at 00 and 99 of a "century")

A date between 1830 and 1929, estimated to year 1920 is denoted: [_ 1830 1920 1929 _] (one hundred years where the estimation 1920 is not in the middle and where the boundaries are not at 00 and 99 of a "century")

A date between 1880 and 1959, estimated to year 1920 is denoted: [_ 1880 1920 1959 _] (eighty years where the estimation 1920 is (almost) in the middle)

A date between 1850 and 1929, estimated to year 1920 is denoted: [_ 1850 1920 1929 _] (eighty years where the estimation 1920 is not in the middle)

A date between 1850 and 1929, not estimated to a year is denoted: [_ 1850 1929 _] (eighty years with no estimation to a year)

Let's clarify: If we adopt the notation above (or something similar) and use it consistently, which different former notations could we avoid?

Regards!

Saašha,
