This is kind of trivial, I guess, but I'm bringing it up in the hope that someone can tell me how to fix it.  The sentence for the death fact type includes the individual's age at death.  However, if the age at death is less than one year, what prints in narrative reports is "He died on 17 Apr 1899 at the age of 0."  That isn't correct; in this particular case the baby was 3 days old.  Both the exact birth and death dates are in my database.  I guess I can understand the use of zero if the birth and death dates are the same, but not when the baby lived for a specified length of time.

 

I know of two choices here:  delete the reference to age in the death fact type sentence template, or customize the sentence individually in all such cases.  I'm hoping someone can tell me of some template tweak that has the meaning of "print age at death in years; if less than one don't print age" or something like that.
