in reply to U.S. State Names

Very nice, but you left out the fine folks in DC... Though they break your regex :)

For completeness, I offer these which are "Official" FIPS State codes. I hate to admit, I'm way to familiar with the government's GIS TIGER/Line database.

This is also why I'm way too familiar with having to do with fixed length records and mainframe data extracts... Re: Converting fixed record length files to pipe delimited I still have nightmares about it.

It does contain a lot, and when I say a lot it's huge, of interesting data in it, like Lat's and Long's for just about *everything* anyone could think to map down to street intersections, and street addresses.
