Thanks. I don't know what Dan did for hoard.it, but our original  
script treated 'about' or 'circa' as the date plus/minus five years.  
So 'circa 1800' would be returned as '1795/1805'. For 'before' or  
'after', you could return a pair of dates with either the first or  
second blank, accordingly. This is assuming we encode time periods as  
per the guidelines in the PNDS application profile:
