No. Year 37 is in our era. ;-) [But for some reason, until just before I filed
the bug, I did the same error as you. Either something with the way our brains
work, or some history lessons we forgot or may be something in the way Ian
moves his bits and bytes.] Btw Nero's reign was AD 54 to AD 68. He persecuted
the Christians. 

Also, according to HTML5:

"Dates before the year one can't be represented as a datetime in this version
of HTML."

(For some reason, Ian has no problems with stating "this version of HTML" in
the WHATwg spec either.) 

>>     on the eighteenth day  before the  Kalends of January". [0]

Thus I accepted Ian fix. (He also said he removed the comment.)
