+      <p>In any case, remember that regular expressions are substring
+      matches. That is, you don't need the regex to describe the entire
+      string, just the part that you wish to match. Thus, using a regex
+      of <code>.</code> is often sufficient rather than <code>.*</code>,
+      and the regex <code>abc</code> is <strong>not</code> the same
as
+      <code>^abc$</code>.</p>
