You'll likely get a lot of suggestions on books and websites, so I offer
something different... I suggest that you find a very good tool that will
assist you in testing regex patterns with ease.  Notice that I didn't say
"create regex patterns with ease"--I didn't say that because I think that
there's value in actually doing the construction yourself.  If you are on a
Windows platform, there is a good regex tool [0] used to be packaged with
ISAPI Rewrite that can now be downloaded separately.

If you are on *nix, then you may have to hunt around a bit because I don't
know of any offhand.
