By the way to save yourself going completely mad when writing regexes,
designers had the foresight to include an uninterpolated string literal

  NumberReg = new Regex( @"^[+-]?\d*\.?\d*(e?[+-]?\d*" );

This means that all escapes get passed directly to the regex parser.
useful when writing DOS-style paths.
