The Belgians use nonante but not huitante and the Swiss use huitante and nonante (not really sure for the Swiss but that's what I've heard).
From what I know, the base 20 system comes from the celtic culture so logically, it gradually died when you go to the east.

Don't laugh but to keep my mind ticking over I do this. Walk around the nearest car park,select random car number plates and in my head either add the numbers,multiply or divide.Simple,less sedentary than sudoku and it keeps the mind sharp. __________________ Bah!

Sudoku is logic, not math, to be fair.
