FYI, I spent a lot of time trying to figure out where I was using inappropriate slang in my last post. When I tried to submit my post I was prevented, and was told I was using "u" as a silly English abbreviation for "you". Finally, I figured out that referring to the was the offending line. Maybe abbreviating the United States to the is silly, but I tend to believe that it's a failure of the validation engine, and that it's far sillier to have to use CODE tags to refer to the .

So, can I now also refer to the letter 'u'? Or "U"? What about U-238, or U-571? Evidently, I can. Awesome.
I agree that people who use 'u' without quotes tend to make things harder to read for those of us who don't. And yet there are plenty of other legitimate uses - I'm glad to see that these are now supported. Thanks.
