[Bug 8014] New: "the character immediately after the last one examined by the sub-algorithm" - what does 'examined' mean? To find the number in "123XY" it has to examine the X, so is that counted? Probably should say "after the last one matched" instead

           Summary: "the character immediately after the last one examined
                    by the sub-algorithm" - what does 'examined' mean? To
                    find the number in "123XY" it has to examine the X, so
                    is that counted? Probably should say "after the last one
                    matched" instead

"the character immediately after the last one examined by the sub-algorithm" -
what does 'examined' mean? To find the number in "123XY" it has to examine the
X, so is that counted? Probably should say "after the last one matched" instead
