+ Extended properties such as "InMusicalSymbols" are not currently supported,
+ however since PCRE 6.5, PCRE has supported extended properties for script

+ list of supported script names can be found in the

+ any named script are lumped together into a special script called
+ <literal>Common</literal>. <literal>Any</literal> matches against
+ <emphasis>any</emphasis> character (including newline).
Specifying case-insensitive (caseless) matching does not affect these escape sequences.
