Yes, it works in US and UK formats, and with/without the century. Last time this happened, so I'm told, was 01/01/1010, and most people outside the church wouldn't have had a clue what the date was!

How so, Steve? That would be 2-2-20 or 02-02-20, neither of which is palindromic. think.gif

Now I’m curious as what the church found significant regarding 01/01/1010, Google didn’t find any special church reference to that date.

Guys, my brain has taken a sabbatical! While I wait for it to come back, (a) no, it doesn't work without the century (unless you change the order of the digits a little, and (b) I must have meant 10/10/1010 (or possibly 01/01/0101, when probably nobody used that date format anyway, even without the leading zero). 
I wonder if any date palindromes work in Roman numerals? No, actually I don't care! I'm gonna go and lie down now :(

No, 01/01/1010 would be correct, as 10/10/1010 isn't a palindrome.

(Of course, none are truly palindromes with the / or - separator characters in place :) )

so exciting 🤣🤒

The PDF document allows one to find the name of the font, using Adobe Reader. (Right click on the document, select Document Properties... then choose the Fonts panel).

Then, if one so wishes, one can search the web and one can find the font and download it and give it a go in Affinity Publisher if one so chooses. And/or any application program of your choice.

I designed and produced the font myself, and my licence for using the software used in that production is at the top level, so it is alright for me to say that.
