  I have a date which is "xiij" which I presume is xiii. The problem is that the drop down list gives "xiij/xiii" and this is the only thing being automatically accepted as right. I also have a problem with someone christened on the tenth of a month. The system doesn't like roman numerals. Do you want "tenth" to be translated to "x" or as normal "10". There's going to be a lot of F7 needed here! There is a similar problem with burials for the Event Age. So far I have only found the age in roman numerals and these also aren't accepted automatically.

A: The option from the dropdown/dictionary is correct, for "xiij" you would select the "xiij/xiii" option. In regard to entering days that are not in the dictionary we have made an adjustment so you don't have to F7 them.Annafechter 21:04, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

My pages have dates such as 8, 21, 24. and months March, April etc. Do you want these transcribed as roman numerals which means they won't be as seen and F7 is going to be very active?
