plural of cent

In this lesson, Expressing Numbers from 70 to 999, the paragraph which begins "Note: Before the 1990 Spelling Reform, numbers including et as well as numbers higher than 100 didn’t include the hyphen...", has two examples, "deux cent" and "deux-cent", neither of which have "cent" written as "cents". They should have an "s" at the end shouldn't they, since they are not followed by another number?

Thank you very much for pointing this out Ruth, this little error which catches us out from time to time has been fixed!

Bonne continuation !
