On the contrary, to handle those you are going to first have to convert to numbers otherwise you are just "substring" isn't really going to be the right relation for roman numerals. Having converted to numbers you could use either approach to truncate the upper range limit before converting back to roman numerals. (You'll probbaly need a different truncation algorithm, in this case, if you want to trucate at all).
