Excellent presentation.  Thanks.

As an extra, for those of you programmers who are interested in a bit 
more brain busting reading on regular expression implementations:

Amongst other things, this article answered one of my questions which

having a seemingly less capable regex engine.

Just in case anyone else finds this interesting.
