     I've got a few date tokens that I've reworked using Velocity, but there are a few issues, the most troubling of which is that the script succeeds in the Marketo email previewer but fails when I send a test email containing it. Look:
      
  1.           Parse date to make it manipulable.           
    1.                     #set ($x = ${convert.parseDate($lead.DATEFIELD,"MMM d',' yyyy")})
         
  2.           Compare dates.           
    1.                     $date.difference($x,$date)
         

     This works in the previewer. When I send an email containing anything above, however, I get the script and not its output. I've even tried $convert.toString($x), but that hasn't worked.
      
     Can anyone shed some light on what's going on? Thanks!
