I think I'd have to have the trailing bracket when specifying the "$" at 
the end.  However maybe the bracket is some special regex character and 
needs to be escaped?  I'm just going to remove the bracket and the $ and 
see what happens.  However I *would* like to understand.

Thanks for your help!
