After I posted, I realised it was probably related to this. However,  
if you set the centuryCutoff to 70, then "04/04/68" will retun true.  
It seems that Rev is doing more than checking the format of the  
string, and is probably doing a conversion of some kind.

Mikey, can you use the centuryCutoff to get round your problem?
