           Summary: Possible regex bugs when moving to character strings
           Product: Validator
           Version: 0.7.0
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: check
        AssignedTo: link@pobox.com
        ReportedBy: bjoern@hoehrmann.de
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

When we move to using proper Perl character strings, a number of regular 
expressions will behave differently, for example \s will suddenly match U+0085, 
U+2028 and U+2029 instead of just [\r\n\t ], similar for \w and other symbols. 
We need to check where this might be desired and where it might lead to 
problems and have proper test cases for them.
