Or even even better if you omitted the punctuation entirely and made the style sheet insert it ;)

It would probably be better for interoperability/re-use purposes if
punctuation went between the unitdate tags rather than inside them,
thus:
<unitdate normal="1963">1963</unitdate>, <unitdate
normal="1968">1968</unitdate>

All the best,
John
