Title: The term 'Dutch' is wrong!

The term 'Dutch' is wrong! This is a postal code from The Netherlands, not 'Dutch'! 'Dutch' is NOT a country but a language which is spoken in different countries (with different forms of postal codes). As such, please do not use such a regexp if you know you' users speak 'Dutch'. Their postal code might be quite different!

This is too simple: letter combinations SS, SD and SA are not allowed for historic reasons. F, I, O, Q, U and Y are in use nowadays. I posted a correct(er) one

Comment:
This is not a completely correct expression for Dutch post codes as the code cannot have a leading 0. A better one is as follows: ^[1-9]{1}[0-9]{3}\s?[a-zA-Z]{2}$
