Mean no offence to you personally, but this thread should again be
a reason why regular expressions should be used sparingly, if at all,
and against well-validated input.

If one really wants regular expressions, Perl still beats any other
language that I have personally seen, especially when it comes
to Unicode input (here, be real dragons).
