As Mary Lou Bailey pointed out in another message, it is possible to
substitute "about" for "circa" by using an alternate language. This will
not affect the Person View at present, but it is likely that in TMG 5 the
screen views will be translatable just as reports are now.
My mention of this is quite independent of my opinion about date modifiers
in TMG. Although the issue is thorny so long as the program interprets
modifiers (as it does in sorting dates) I believe that in general TMG
should accept as regular all of the modifiers that have been mentioned
recently, including "circa."
