Hi David.

Just to make matters worse. Here's the formatting
rules for UK phone numbers needed to make any
formatting complete. Ive actually just finished
this last week in an app for a client here in the
UK.

Sorry if you already know this, I just thought I'd
add it to point out the whole problem

Cheers

UK Telephone pattern match:
 
(02x) xxxx xxxx  
(01x1) xxx xxxx 
(011x) xxx xxxx 
(01xxx) xxxxxx 
(01xxx) xxxxx 
(01xxxx) xxxxx 
(016977) xxxx
(01###) #####[#]  
(011#) ### ####  
(01#1) ### #### 
(013873) #####  
(015242) #####  
(015394) ##### 
(015395) #####

I have started working my way through Justin's
patch to convert it to an en_GB version, but I'm
stuck on phone numbers. The rules for phone number
formats are complex in the UK and I don't know the
best way of expressing the formatter.

For example, these are all valid, properly
formatted, UK numbers:

+44 20 xxxx xxxx
(020) xxxx xxxx
(016977)  xxxx
0800 xxxxxx
0800 xxx xxxx
01332 050xxx
074xx xxxxxx

When the number starts with the international
dialling code details - +44, - then the 0 at the
beginning of the number is dropped, the area code
(if the number has one) is mandatory and is shown
separated by spaces. Finally, the rest of the
number is shown, formatted depending on length.

If the number has an optional area code (which
varies in length from 3 to 6 digits), then that
area code is shown inside () brackets. If the
0xx... part is mandatory (such as with 07...
mobile numbers) then no ()'s are used.

Can anyone give me a clue how to tackle this?

David.
