Not in either the UK:
| Be it further enacted by the Authority aforesaid,
| that the Years of our Lord 2000, 2400, 2800, and every other fourth
| hundred Year of our Lord, from the said Year of our Lord 2000 inclusive,
| and also all other Years of our Lord, which by the present Supputation are
| esteemed to be Bissextile or Leap Years, shall for the future, and in all
| Times to come, be esteemed and taken to be Bissextile or Leap Years,
| consisting of 366 Days, in the same Sort and Manner as is now used with
| respect to every fourth Year of our Lord.
or in those countries conforming to Inter Gravissimas:
| idemque ordo intermittendi intercalandique bissextum diem in
| quadringentis quibusque annis perpetuo conservetur.
It's a leap year.
