META tags containing dates as text strings

From: Simon McLean <simon.mclean(at)>
Date: Tue Jun 15 1999 - 09:38:51 GMT
Searching for MetaName=Word
eg with the following defined:    content = 13/02/1999
does not reveal any search results, though 'content=13*' will.
(the date I just want to match like a text string)

As soon as I place a slash in the field, no results are returned.
I've tried various things such as '\' character if slash '/' is
considered a
special character but to no avail.

I take it dashes '-' in the dates would have worked, but for this,
have to alter all the Meta
dates enterd from / to - ...........

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
