My apologies, but what about a phrase such as: This is a phrase.<cr> There is no whitespace at beginning or end.

Eek. Or possibly allow for cases to accept punctuation, so long as there is no other printable non-whitespace character afterwards? For instance, accept: This is a phrase. This too is a phrase.<cr> ... As two phrases. However, do not end with the dot here as a phrase ending: This phrase mentions index.html.<cr> Yes? --Charles
