I have read and fixed the regular expression documentation and made a patch. Ezio, please review it and apply it. Thanks.

The section heads should remain in title case.

The colon in the octal escape section should remain, but the "If" following it should be lower cased.

"Phonebook" should remain a single word.

"vs" is fine without the period in a section head.

It would be better to replace all of the "e.g." and "i.e" with "for example" and "such as".

Raymond, what about the title "search() vs. match()"? There is a dot there! Please add the dot where I added it. Or remove it here as well. Also, "Checking For a Pair" is "Checking for a Pair". The word "for" must be lowercase.

I'll do these fix-ups but wish you would shift your focus to making substantive changes.  You're wasting developer time.

Applied many of these changes to 3.2 and 3.3.
If someone is interested, feel free to backport them to 2.7.
