Rear Derailleur and Cog Fitting

Hey guys, Im new here and I have a question. If the largest size cog my Derailleur says it can handle is 27t, is it still possible to put a 28t cog in?

Thanks for your time: http://www.bikeforums.net/************************

Yeah, it's fine if it will fit. Many derailleurs are rated conservatively, so you can go a tooth or two higher than the manufacturer says.
