Century ending years divisible, evenly by 400 are leap years.  
1700-1800-1900-2100 weren't/won't be leap years.

                I thought the leap year rule stated that any year evenly
                by 4 was a leap year unless it was also evenly divisible by
                and then it wasn't. That would make 1700, 1800 and 1900 leap
                years, but 2000 wouldn't be. Yet everywhere I look, it shows
                Feb 29th in 2000 (calendars, PIM software, OS/400 date data
                types, etc). I seem remember a thread on this list a while
                and it was stated that 2000 wasn't a leap year. Can anyone
                me straight here.
