- Input two-digit year, transmit four-digit year.
- Input year name or number in a different system (including ?AD?/?BC?/?CE?, emperor eras etc.), transmit proleptic Gregorian year number. (Some calendar eras share their definitions of year length and start, some are close enough to be considered equivalent in practice.)
