Subject: Re: [ubl-ndrsc] Rule: 5
** Reply to message from "Lisa-Aeon" <email@example.com> on Mon, 21 Jul 2003 10:29:04 -0500 I never previously saw the need for a "business" version of this rule. I really couldn't see too many CEOs implementing this rule for themselves, so I thought the regular expression was just fine. What I do not like about these rule options now is that they describe the characters [a-zA-Z] as the "letters". This is only true for the English alphabet. If you only want English letters, I think that should be mentioned explicitly, to avoid implicit cultural imperialism. That said, I thought the regular expression was just fine as it was originally.
