--- i think there was an reason why i didn't use ?, +, * (but i can't
remember at the moment). The "One or More" is the UTF "currency sign",
for me it is sort of emtpy circle with a cross through it - if they
are too similar, i can look into switching them. Part of the issue
with ?,+,* is how to you represent just "required" in REGEX simply
having a char there makes it exist, but on the chart it is slightly
more difficult.

I'm certainly open to making things clearer so let me know what you think.
