Subject Re: mx PostCode validator class

That's cool!

For a Postal Code validator, I believe you'll need a thorough suite of
tests to validate (pun!) that the class works for the wide variety of
Postal Formats.

Is there an ISO-Standard for Postal Codes? Or perhaps an agreed upon
standard for Formats for each country-code?
