Description Michael Kay 2005-08-05 13:51:30 UTC
The section numbering for 7.6.1 Regular expression syntax seems awry. Most of
the syntax is described within section which is titled "Flags".

You could solve the problem by moving the section on flags to the end of 7.6.1.
Alternatively change the heading of 7.6.1 to "Regular Expressions and Flags",
and introduce a new subheading Regular Expression Syntax at the end of
the flags section.

Another editorial imperfection in this section: stray double-quotes in

Newline here means the character #x0A" only

Moved the 'flags' subsection to the end of the section.
