      I see what you mean, NoteTab doesn't support \S for a non-space
      character. If I understand, the way you're using \s, within brackets,
      [^\s], the caret is actually becomes a 'NOT' operator.

      I assume that would work whenever a back-slash is preceded by caret
      within brackets. If so, that could be a handy device to keep in mind.
