Title: Small changes to best NANP matcher

This is the best NANP pattern so far, IMHO. The NANP specifies that the second digit of the area code digit can only be [0-8]. I propose allowing a period as a separator, and using word boundary to find the end of the phone number. There's no need to place "|" between the separators; they're just single characters, and they can go into a character class bracket.

This was what I was trying to do for a day and could not do. Please tell me what the ":" character does. I cannot find any documentation on it. Thanks, Warren

Best on the site for basic validation. Proper but not too constraining on - space mixtures.

To allow for . as separator, which is becoming more popular ^(?:\([2-9]\d{2}\)\ ?|[2-9]\d{2}(?:\-?|\ ?|\.?))[2-9]\d{2}[- \.]?\d{4}$ It now matches 345.678.9012 and (345) 678.9012 Not sure what the problem was for the apparent test (203 768-9876 on the original... It (properly) does NOT match.
